Observing my children with their friends and also considering the friends in my life, I’m wanting to express thankfulness to those who are true friends!
Listen as much as they speak
Encourage when we are weak
Laugh with us till we cry
Encourage when life is one long sigh
Pause their lives to lend an ear
When there are sobs and prayers to hear
Smile and share in delight
When there is only sunshine in sight
Can be incredibly hard to find
As our life’s path begins to wind
Around the world or around the bend
What a precious gift, to find a true friend!
