Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
I get to see my best friend today. Patti and I live over 600 miles apart, we both work full time and have families, so getting together can be challenging. But seeing each other – in person, not just texts or emails or Facetime – is a priority. So today I’m getting on a plane. And even more delightful – over the weekend we will lead a retreat together, which I’m sure will bring back shared memories of Sunday School, junior choir, and church youth group from long ago.
Friends are a precious treasure in life. I like this quote –
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.
Some people enrich our lives for a short time, others are there forever. I think of so many people whose wisdom, support, love, and laughter have changed my life forever.
I give thanks for friends.
What are you thankful for today?
