A True Friend
No one ever said life would be easy, but we all can get by with a little help from our friends. We all have our fair share of difficult times we must encounter on this road called life. Sometimes it may feel too much for us to bear, and may even make us consider possibly throwing in the towel. But most people don’t realize when they reach that point of exhaustion just how close they are to something better. Friends help us in so many countless ways, be it support, love, understanding, or encouragement. Sometimes friends are actually angels in disguise.
Recently friends of mine, whom I consider as family near and dear to my heart, are going through a difficult time beyond their control. At times like this one must remain positive and hopeful that better days are just around the corner. I truly believe that everything in life happens for a reason. We may not know why until the time is right, and only then may we begin to understand it. There for we must continue down the road of life towards the next destination. Friends are an absolute treasure in moments like this. I may not be of wealthy means or have the answers to their many unanswered questions, but I can offer much more than money or knowledge can…I can be your shoulder to cry on, a hug when you need one, a hand to help you, or even a nonjudgmental ear to vent to. This can mean so much at times like this, to motivate them to not give up!
So when you know someone in need, who just might be reaching the end of their rope, remember there is ALWAYS something that you could do! Sometimes it’s the littlest things that mean the most in life.
This past Thanksgiving weekend we all gave thanks for what we have in our lives . . . . Now be the friend that someone else can be thankful to have in theirs!
