The Blessing of Friends
April 10th, 2013 9:12 AM

After going through a month of my own "March Madness," suffering through several personal trials, I realized that angels aren't our only divine messengers; so are friends.  Angels bestow grace and perform miracles; so do our friends.  God speaks to us through all those intimate chats, conversations, and encouraging words from a friend who loves us unconditionally and is committed to our happiness.

Friends are the jewels in our crown of contentment, so we need to treat them as preciously as we hold them in our hearts.  Rituals of friendship are very meaningful and must take effort to maintain.  Stay in touch regularly, remember their birthdays, anniversaries, or special events in their lives.  Share the tough times as well as the good ones; share resolutions, dreams or aspirations. For distant friends, make annual outings a tradition and priority.  Never lose touch with good friends, or if that has happened, take steps now to re-ignite that relationship. 

Above all, let your friends know how much you love and appreciate them.  Tell them frequently how much you treasure the gift of their friendship.  Sadly, significant others come and go.  Children grow up; parents pass away; siblings become separated by distance.  But our friends are the continuous threads that help hold our lives together.

Cherish your friends, not only in thought but in action.  Remember that friends are people who help you be more yourself; more the person you are intended to be.  They are a true blessing!

PLEASE NOTE:   I will not be posting a new blog for the next TWO weeks, as I will be enjoying the visit of a very special high school  friend, and then taking a cruise with 11 of my very best lifetime friends!  AHH, the blessing of friends . . . . . . . .
