All I Can Do..

I hate feeling powerless. I hate feeling like there is nothing I can do, nothing that I can say to make anything better. It's frustrating beyond belief to not have anything to say, to not know what to do to help someone. I hate when people are going through something and you try to be there for them, but it never feels like it's good enough.

As I was driving from my parents house to my cousins house tonight...I had one of those moments when the perfect song comes on the radio. Which oddly enough...seems to happen quite often in my life. Anyways, so a Chantal Kreviazuk came on the radio...and the words

As she sang...

All I can do is love you to pieces
Give you a shoulder to cry when you need it
When the day is long
And the night is coming down on you
All I can do, all I can do, all I can do

And all that I could think about..was how true those words were.

I wish that there was a magic wand I could wave so that no one was ever stressed. Where no one was faced with being upset or difficult decisions. Where growing up wasn't so hard and there was always a way to make life simple and happy.

But there isn't...and I know that. And as much as it's diffcult and hard to come to grips with the fact that I don't have all of the answers, that I can't fix everything...and *gasp* that I don't have magical powers....I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm here. That I can still be here and be a shoulder to cry on. I can do what I can..and even if it's not everything..even if it's not's still all I can do. And I know it won't solve everything, or for that matter..probably even anything. But maybe it will help. One can only hope..
