Recently, I've been drinking deep into the friendships that I have.
I've never laid so bare in front of my friends with my character flaws and they have never come so clean with their weaknesses too. And yet, instead of contempt, true friends provide greater love and support. Lifting up one another in weakness, nudging each other up to a higher plane, pointing each other towards God.
Friends that I can safely say grew up with me. Friends whom I've loved or hurt and yet still love me to bits and care about me. And the reverse is true.
I'm so happy for friends. They are a real gift from God and I really cannot ask for more. =)
