Friendship is one of God’s greatest gifts. You can never, never have too many friends. Of course, all of them won’t turn out to be a wonderful, special friend, but they will all add to your life.
My very best friend, who I consider closer than my sisters, started out over 20 yrs. ago as just someone who was convenient to go out to lunch with because we worked close-by. Frankly, I didn’t know her very well, but she didn’t seem like a very interesting person. Certainly, not a good match for my witty self! Boy, was I wrong, and I would have missed so much if I hadn’t gotten to know her. She is, by far, the MOST interesting, funny friend I have ever had. She can crack me up by just telling me the plot of a TV show. And, she loves me just the way I am — even at my worst.
May all of you who read this be blessed with many, many friends, and at least one like my friend, Linda.
Look around you — a “Linda” may be hanging around close-by just waiting to be your friend.
