It usually takes a special event, like a wedding, graduation, or significant birthday to gather with a variety of friends. As young actresses, our daughters’ theater productions have become a congregation of those close to us showing support. Just finished with their last show for the Fall season, I reflected on this weekend and how blessed we are by our friends.
Friends that come 150 miles to support us.
Friends we see on a daily basis.
Friends in the show holding each other up literally and in prayer.
Friends from church that come, even without their kids! (That’s a big one in my book.)
Friends in our theater family who are not in the show this time, but we can always count on to lend a helping hand.
Friends we don’t see often enough, but will make time in their schedule to let our daughters entertain them.
It is a wealthy person, indeed, who calculates riches not in gold, but in friends.
How lucky are we, to be so rich.
