For a lifetime I have held that wish for friendships that are not necessarily a “best friend”, nor the one you hang out with every weekend, but one who trusts you and you trust fully, and cannot imagine your life without – and you know it never will be. To be someone’s treasured friend… To be a trusted and treasured friend of one I also trust and treasure. To me, that is the penultimate treasure. It would be that elusive prize that would bring the love, laughter and sharing that only that particular relationship can offer – those things that to me are life’s ultimate blessings.
As God told me in my dream, a true friend is one who loves you, one who wants you to feel loved, and who does everything to the best of their ability for their every act toward you to only reflect and show you that love. Such a rare and special gift that is to be offered. To be able to share that gift with one who wishes to bestow the same upon you… How could anyone not see that friendship as one of God’s greatest blessings?
