One of the greatest blessings in life is that of a TRUE friend. Someone who supports you in your endeavors, who believes in your dreams, who loves you just the way you are – flaws and all. Who will forgive you for anything, someone you can laugh with, who gets your weird sense of humor, who keeps your secrets, has your back, lets you cry on their shoulder, and who is there for you through thick and thin, no matter what. They are the kind of friend that leaves footprints on your heart.
But in order to have that kind of friendship – it requires that we BE that kind of friend in return. Our lives today are so busy and over-scheduled that it becomes easy take those friendships for granted. Life gets in the way, and before we know it, time passes and our relationships can begin to suffer.
So today, think about that person who has been a true friend to you – or that someone who has made a significant impact in your life. When was the last time you let them know? And ask yourself this question, “Is there something I could do to be a better friend?”
This is your opportunity to step up!
Take a moment right now to reach out to them and let them know they’ve made a deep impression upon your heart. Pick up the phone, send a text, or simply forward this message.
It’s the small things that add up to a big difference and keep us connected to those special people in our lives.
