Friendship is Golden!

It is with great enthusiasm that I continue writing about friendship this week. I realized that I hadn’t included the magical moments,  the comforting words and the surprising visits. Old and new friends contribute to my life and, I imagine, your life in ways that we might take for granted. It’s amazing how much we heal just by being around the kindness and comfort of friends.

Lighten and brighten…

Magical moments are those times when, if there was someone filming you, there would be motivational music and magic dust sparkling through the air with sunshine making it’s way through the cloud. It would all be orchestrated in such a way that shivers would run down the observer’s spine. It wouldn’t be fake, it would be a real moment, a moment of benevolence and love.

Friendship includes magical moments. These are times that you wouldn’t expect. They happen when two people show they care about each other. One magical moment recently, was meeting my boyfriend’s family, and for some reason one of us said,” oh what are we going to do with us?”  We just let go into gales of laughter. Laughter as such that I hadn’t had since I was a child. It felt so good and we were out at a barbecue in the trees and people were looking at us and we were just laughing and laughing. What a precious moment.

Walk the talk!

Communication with friends is an art. We can encourage each other and bring out the best in our close friends. It is wonderful to feel physically and emotionally warmed up by the blessings of a friend.

Comforting words are a delight in friendships. My friend and I sometimes go on walks or have each other over for food. We tell each other that we are glad to be in the other persons company. We enjoy the polite conversation. We are happy to have good company. We genuinely care about each other’s health and we feel better after we’ve been together.

Hello again!

Spontaneity with friends keeps us all on our toes. Friends seem to sense when we need their presence. It is times like these that the friends we have prove their worth, over and over, as they bring us a bouquet of flowers or a chocolate cake. Knowing our friends aren’t far away can make us feel the love around us.

Surprising visits include the way my mom showed up last summer with fresh vegetables she had just picked from her garden. She chose me of all people to walk and visit. She showed up with some fresh beans and they were so fresh you could smell the vitality. This was a wonderful surprise visit. Friends like this and the amazing fresh food have motivated me to get a share, with a friend, in a garden for this next growing season.

Reflect on friendships…

You can see how these special times with friends really make a difference. Some people say friendship helps the world go round. I know that it does. I have seen it assist a lot of people in special ways, to  just be themselves and feel good again. I am hoping to trust the quality and blessing of friendship more and not waste the wonderful consideration that my friends give me.  Are you willing to feel the gentle strengthening power of friendship?
