These days I have just a few that I would count at true friends. They are women who listen, who nod and don't try to fix whatever problem we might be discussing. They have burdens of their own and I try to be that kind of friend for them. Two of these women don't live nearby but I know I can pick up the phone or send a text and they will be there for me.
This week I watched the moms at preschool, their heads bent in conversation as they waited to pick up their children. They laughed together or listened with that look of knowing. There also a few moms who are unable to join in. Some have very heavy burdens (husbands without jobs, children with medical needs, worry and concern).
My prayer today is that they will all have that experience of a true friend, a heart-friend, the experience of friendship that I am celebrating today.
Connecting with other celebrations over on Ruth's blog today.
