Friendship

November 4:  I am thankful for…

…friendship.

Specifically, the kind of friendship that does not wear labels or fit neatly into a box –
the kind that is true and trustworthy –
weathered and time tested –
steadfast and constant –
that does not judge, but encourages –
is challenging and accepting, all at once.

Today I was able to spend some time with my best friend and her family, as they are in town for a few days.  It doesn’t matter that there are hundreds of miles between our daily lives, and it doesn’t matter that our talks are far and few in-between.  When we are able to spend time together, it’s as if the days and years spent apart dissipate and we are just as close as we were when we were teenagers.

In Proverbs 27:17 we are told, “As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend.”  No doubt, my friend is definitely this to me.  I am so thankful for her!
