By the time the man was standing on the ridge of his roof, a helicopter hovered over head, a ladder was let down, and he was waved aboard. ‘No thanks,’ shouted the man, ‘God will save me’.

Eventually, he drowned. When he got to heaven he asked God why he had not saved him. ‘I sent a diver,’ said God, ‘a rowing boat, and a helicopter. What more did you want?????

Even with all the helpful lessons and advice I get from this forum, I continue to have nagging thoughts that, in my interpretation, relate to the message of this parable. It's not that I think that I have some magical ability to cure my friend's addiction, but I keep wondering why two people, verrry unlikely to meet and become friends, would become so close if I'm just supposed to walk away when she gets caught up in the nightmare of addiction. Was it nothing more than chance or did HP cross our paths for a reason?

And if HP crossed our paths to teach ME a lesson, I sure wish He'd spell out what it is that I'm supposed to learn. I was quite peaceful and content before we met, and was very happy during the many years of our friendship. So, the lesson is... what?.. that I'm supposed to be miserable?? LOL
