Friends and coffee go really well together. I was introduced to a great coffee shop called the Boston Coffee House in Waterford by a good friend, Whitney. It’s now my favorite place for coffee and to meet up with friends.
Last week I was able to meet up with two good friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, and what a blessing! It can be really difficult to get together when you have such conflicting schedules. I usually have plenty of free time, but most other people have to work more than three days a week, or have school on top of other things. Anyway, it was wonderful to spend some time with those two ladies; it was refreshing, and good for my soul. Sometimes, even when you don’t talk about anything deep, you can still be incredibly uplifted and refreshed.
Over the last year, I have become very aware of who my true friends are. Your true friends make an effort to spend time with you, even when they don’t have a lot of free time. True friends are there when you are sick or hurting. And a true friend will be honest even when it hurts. Now, there is only One who can be a true Friend to everyone, and I am not Him, but everyone needs a few true friends. So to my true friends, thank you for being a part of my life. I am blessed to call you my friend.
Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times.”
