Friends are Very Special People. Some are golden oldies, since kindergarten days, and some are newies from Facebook connections. Some hype us up, stress us out, but others calm us down and make us stop to smell the roses. To have a friend you need to be a friend. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” Matthew 7:12.
Friends are sometimes the family that isn’t there who know the good, the bad and the wonderful. Why is it that often different circles of a person only overlap and have a wonderful time at the wake of their mutual friend. If they had met earlier everyone’s circle of friendship may have been expanded and many happy times shared.
Last weekend my friend of many, many years (since Kindergarten) shared a wonderful long weekend with me, and my newer friends. What fun we had! Much laughter along with tears, but oh so many fresh memories to add to the already older memories. These we can all replay when alone, and know that we are loveable, loved and give love. Thanks be to wonderful friends, and strangers who will become friends.
