The point that resonates for me is the “don’t be too busy or tired.” Sometimes I am both and friends can get the idea that I’m just not that interested. If I don’t have time or energy for people something is wrong with the choices I’m making and the priorities I’m setting. Once again it goes back to my word for the year: intentionality.
I love this quote. I think we can all think of times in our lives when we’ve been down or broken-hearted and it’s our friends who have lifted us up and encouraged us. Things will get better, we need to get back on our feet; we will soar again.
And remember, whether it’s raining outside or we’re crying on the inside, as long as we have at least one true friend, we have something about which to be joyful.
