Five minute Friday.
Write. Don't check, or edit, just write for the pure love of it.
The prompt is FRIEND
I had a card from a friend today.
We started as colleagues.
Our paths crossed a few times.
But over the past year she has become a friend.
And as a friend
She knew what this weekend meant for us.
But friends are all different aren't they?
Over the past 12 months our friends have been:
Some business as usual
And sadly, some very noticeable by their absence.
I don't blame them
It's not been easy to be our friend this year.
But I thank God for all of them
And pray that the absent ones are not gone forever.
I'm also challenged.
"If you want a friend, be a friend"
The saying goes.
I pray my friends will always know where to come.
And if not, that I'll meet them where they are.
And when I fail as a friend
As I often do
That God will remind me of how blessed I am
And help me to reach out.
