Friendship defined

A good friend, a really good friend, is hard to find.

Someone who will sit and laugh with you, listen to inane ramblings and still get what you're trying to say.

Someone who will cry with you, pray with you, encourage you that God is still on the throne.

Someone who will offer to make chicken soup when you are sick, or insist on babysitting so you can go out.

Some people fade in and out of your life. There are seasons of closeness, and seasons where things happen and you drift apart. Then there are those people that you just know are forever friends. It doesn't matter if you don't see each other for a period of time, you can pick right up where you left off. Friends like this can see you at your absolute worst and it doesn't change their opinion of you.

Can I just say....

Tonight I am very, very thankful to have a friend like this.
