5 Minute Friday: Friend
friend noun \ˈfrend\
: a person who you like and enjoy being with
: a person who helps or supports someone or something
The word brings to mind my oldest and dearest friend. Her name is Jessica. We met in high school and have been friends ever since. She laughs with me and cries with me. She holds me accountable and listens to me ramble. We share a love of reading, dark chocolate m&m's and baking among so many other things. Throughout the years our friendship has been a sheltering tree. Changing with our seasons, growing stronger with each passing year. Every time we see each other it's like a spring rain, warm and cleansing. I always walk away from our time together with a spring in my step and my heart overflowing. Thanks Jessica for being there for me through the good times and the bad. Thanks for your encouragement and love. Thanks for sharing in my memories and listening to my hopes and dreams. I am so thankful that we will share eternity together. I can just see us in heaven, sharing a coffee and a good story when the day is through.
