The Warmth and Depth of Friendship

My friends are warm and curious, funny and sincere.

Sometimes we talk about our favorite tv shows and books. Other times we talk about pain and loss. Some days we get together, and others we text. There are seasons where we talk almost daily, and times when it’s been years.

It doesn’t matter. We know and love each other and fall easily back into the rhythm of togetherness — catching up, laughing, and sometimes crying.

I’m grateful for friends that share the real stuff of life, that talk openly about dreams and challenges.

Friendship adds a richness to life that transcends everyday circumstances.

Maybe today is the day that you reach out to a cherished friend?

It’s ok if it’s been a while.
