Friends laugh with you, share a recipe for supper, lend a listening ear, advise on a decision, push you to grow, support through difficult times, comfort you in loss. Friends are.
Yesterday, I received some exciting news. The first thing I did, after squealing in delight, was to contact my close friends. I had to share. We encourage each other. We reflect with each other. We nudge each other.
And we do a happy-dance for each other!
(I found it interesting that my book post scheduled for today is City Dog, Country Frog by Mo Willems. It’s a beautiful book about friendship and the cycles they go through. I thought, “How appropriate.”)
