Do you have great friends, I mean really great friends? I do! I am so blessed to have some wonderful women in my life. They love me and I love them. We would do just about anything for each other.
If I have a need I can make a call or send and email and have support. These friends have babysat my children, brought me food (and coffee), and been a listening ear and even helped me clean my house. If I need a friend I can call them and tell them I’m coming over to talk and they are welcoming (even late at night). Most importantly I know they pray for me.
All my friends may not be that close. We all have families and are at different places in our availability. I know other women who I hope to be this close to one day but we haven’t been able to nurture our friendship yet. There are close to a dozen of us. I can tell you that this is rare. Most of the time you will have a hard time finding 12 women who genuinely love each other. How does this happen?
I’m not sure. I don’t think there is a magic formula. I can tell you that we all love Jesus! We all started out meeting for Bible study on Tuesday mornings. Some of my friends are at a different place in their lives now and can’t attend. I do believe it is possible to have the same dynamic outside of the church, but here’s the thing.
It takes selflessness.
You don’t find that a lot of places. Selflessness is uncommon. Are we all completely selfless all of the time, no, but we go out of our way to be there for each other.
I can’t imagine my life without my friends! What are you thankful for today?
