“Life is full of people who will make you laugh, cry, smile until your face hurts, and so happy that you think you’ll burst. But the ones who leave their footprints on your soul are the ones that keep your life going.” ~Natalie Bernot
In the past few months, I’ve been using Facebook to reconnect with old friends and keep up with their news. In the process, I was reminded that my friends fall into different circles and periods of my life. Some from high school in Colorado and others from college in Oklahoma. A group from the church I grew up in and another from our church for the past six years. Writers groups. Other families with children with CdLS. Fellow teachers and former students.
Friends come in all shapes and sizes. Some enter your life for a season while others endure for a lifetime. Some celebrate the victories while others walk the dark paths beside you. If you want someone to pray with you about a situation, you have a phone number memorized. And if you want to rent a romantic comedy and eat ice cream out of the carton? Well, you know who to call.
Some make you laugh. And others leave footprints on your soul.
Which type of friends do you have? Which are you?
