Why Good Old Friends Are Priceless Blessings In Our Lives
Keep the people who give joy to your life
I’ve met with an old friend today, someone whom I’ve known since my school days, and I can say that it felt good. It felt good to be able to connect again with another person in such a sincere and comfortable way.
Being an introvert, I must admit that I don’t go out much. I also have a few friends. Most of my interactions these days consisted of online conversations and short messages.
But personal interactions like these from time to time is comforting and healing. This is especially so with friendships that make no pressure on you, relationships that just let you be as you are.
To be seen, accepted and cared for. Those are the simple yet vital things we need.
I feel thankful to God that despite my weaknesses, He has still blessed me with these precious things. May my presence also be something of a comfort to those I will meet along the way. May I be soaked in God’s grace that my presence may also bring forth warmth, joy and healing.
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust
