How awesome is that!
Especially in the current age, not all of us have opportunities to have decades long friendships, but each of us can be a good friend.
My prayer for us all is this:
Heavenly Father, thank you for our earthly family of birth and choice. Thank you for all the people you send to be fellow traveler's during our lives, people who listen to us, counsel us, share their authentic selves with us and are accepting of our authentic selves. Help me, Lord, to be a good friend and to appreciate my good friends. AMEN
