Stand By Me

We get what anyone gets - we get a lifetime. And that means, sooner or later, we're each going to be confronted with very big challenges that seem to be in direct opposition of our goals.

The group is in place for anyone who could use a shoulder to lean on, or one to cry on, and those willing to lend their own shoulders of course. If you are going through a particularly hard time, you may be tempted to put your dreams on hold, feel guilty about your recent success or the pursuit of it, or you just might be discouraged. This group's hope is that you'll find someone here to help.

You needn't be a member to read the topics covered, though all are welcome to join.

Welcome to Stand By Me on 48Days.net!

My friend Sandy (not her real name) was a psych major in her junior year of college when she got the call...

Her father was sick, and the doctors said he probably wouldn’t make it through the end of the year. Without hesitation, Sandy ditched class that day and got in her car to make the two-hour trek home.

Sandy resolved to finish school when life calmed down. It was the decision that made the most sense to her then, and with how her world had seemed to turn itself upside-down in a mere moment, she figured she would meet it all head on – by standing on her head. And so it was in the months that followed, Sandy was able to enjoy the final precious moments with her father until the day he quietly passed away at home.
