When it comes to friends, I am so abundantly blessed... I don't really have all that many, but the handful I do have are remarkable. Each one is so uniquely wonderful with his or her own set of talents and preferences and qualities that inspire me to become a better person. They teach me and uplift me. And over the years, how amazing it has been to see our friendships bloom.
photo cred: stranger in the park
I've heard it said
that people come into our lives
for a reason,
bringing something we must learn
and we are led to those
who help us most to grow if we let them,
and we help them in return.
So much of me
is made of what I learned from you.
You'll be with me
like a handprint on my heart.
And now whatever way our stories end,
I know you'll have re-written mine
by being my friend.
(Lyrics from "For Good" from Wicked)
Truer words have ne'er been spoken.
