These Three Things

Saturday, November 04, 2017

These three things are what you will find in every great friendship.  Friends see your potential, and they celebrate. They understand your hurt, and they nurture those tender places. Friends note your dark side, and they love you into the light. Wouldn’t you like to have a friend like that! 

People will always require a word that ignites the best within them, a touch that heals a hidden hurt, and an affirmation of acceptance that frees them from something they feel they have to hide. These are three key ways that we make intimate, meaningful and enduring connections. 

In this fast-paced world, its good to take the time to slow down and notice one another. Now that you have the map, I sure hope you will make the time, sometime soon.
