November often begins a time when people reflect on personal blessings and thankfulness. I have so much to be thankful for in my life, but I want to focus on friendships.
Recently, I took a Gallup “Strengths” survey, and one of the questions asked if I would prefer have lots of friends or a few meaningful friendships. It took me about a nanosecond to mark that “a few meaningful friendships” is what best fits me.
I began to think about those people who in the past 6 months (especially) have helped me, listened to me, extended grace to me, prayed for me, loved me, and counseled me kindly. I realized that I have been especially blessed in this area of my life.
I am so thankful for the kind, loving friendships I am privileged to have…thank you…you know who YOU are.
