“Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 NIV)
Friends occupy a special part in our hearts! I think we can all say our lives would be very dull without our friends! Special friends are friends whether they live minutes, miles, or hours away.
Distant friendships do not mean you cannot be close; it makes the relationship even more special. I’ve learned that true, special friendships continue to grow even over long distance! I’ve had friends who I rarely get to see but every time we hang out, it’s like we were never separated. The memories come back and one day is not enough to get caught up.
Deep friendships do not depend on the times you see other but rather how you value that friendship no matter how far or how little time you spend together. Always keep in touch with friends; it shouldn’t be a chore if you commit a small portion of your life to it. Friendships are rewarding; and losing them is sad.
As we go through life, wonderful blessings enter and exit our lives, but truly special friendships should last forever! It’s up to you to keep the flame burning, so be true to your friends and always remember that a friend is an angel who lifts us off our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
