For Friends. The old ones we’ve had in our lives forever, and the new ones we’ve managed to make old ones out of. The ones who stick through thick and thin and are always present, and the ones whose presence is felt through the distance. And let’s not forget those who God reconnects us with, always in timely fashion.
I am so blessed to have in my life friends who, through the years, have taught me about trust, compassion, acceptance, humility, forgiveness, and loyalty. For them, today and always, I am Thankful. In my Father’s house are many mansions, and I hope yours will be next to mine.
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
What are you thankful for today?
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.”
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
