Thanksgiving Fest Reflections of Gratitude: Day 12

Patti and Sue 2

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.

Patti and Sue

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?

    I am also thankful for friendships like the one you and Patti have. You’re both such extraordinarily good people, and I’m so glad that you will have this time together. Hugs to both of you!
