Many times I have pondered over the years why we humans meet our dearest friends or bond so deeply with another person when we are most vulnerable. I think it is because when we face a life-threatening illness, job loss, whatever the catastrophe may be, we are left completely without any pretension and our hearts and souls are open to those around us and we are able to accept the love and kindness of others—almost as freely and thankfully as children accept love.
