To be somebody is to pray for your friends
when pain in your body keeps you awake
and don’t allow you to sleep
but your care, concern and love are overcoming the pain
and causing you to pray with such fervour and zeal
that you transcend the aching body.
When you are able to forget your own pain
because you care for your friends
and must lift them up to the Throne of Grace
you show yourselves to be A Great Somebody
able to deny your own needs to meet those of others!
