SOAPBOX of the week: treasured ties of fellowship

“A friend is somebody you want to be around
when you feel like being by yourself.”     – Barbara Burrow, author

We all have those days.  You don’t want to cry, but a shoulder wouldn’t hurt.  You can figure it out on your own, but could use some advice and are open to hearing the truth.  You don’t feel like talking, but wouldn’t mind listening.  You’re fine being by alone, but don’t want to get lonely.  And there THEY are.  They’re not family.  Not sweethearts.  But when you’re apart, life just ain’t nearly as fabulous!  And that defines true friendship.  Whatever you call them…if you’ve found your anamchara, soul friend, or BFF.  Love them.  Cherish them.  Nurture them.  For the love and loyalty you devote to your friends creates a lifeline to getting the most out of your life and really experiencing all it has to offer… especially when you feel not leaving the house!
