Yesterday I talked with my dear friend, Corrie, for over an hour. It was lovely. We’ve been friends for many years – going on 18! – and are now separated by an ocean and many miles. We don’t talk often, but when we do, it does wonders for my soul. It feels like she is in my living room, sipping a cup of tea, talking about our hearts together – just like old times. We see her family once a year when they return to visit which we’re grateful for. But I’m still hopeful that one day they’ll return to Colorado.
There is something so special about those friends you’ve had for so many years. The ones where so many memories form the foundation of your friendship. The ones you continue to stay in touch with even when you’re separated. The ones where you can pick up with where you left off last time. The ones you have history with, stories with, and an understanding with.
I’m so very grateful for you and your friendship, Corrie, and pray, dear friend, for God’s nearness to you!
