The short list.
Today I am thankful for those friends who are on what I refer to as “the short list.” They know who they are. We have raised our children together, gone to school together, weathered storms together, and prayed for each other. A couple of them, I see regularly. We have lunch together and sit in church together. A couple of them, I see once or twice a year, maybe. I trust them. I value their opinions. They keep me grounded when I want to freak out. They all hold special pieces of my heart. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work;
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
