Right now, I’m in the thick of a trial. I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t expect it. I was not prepared for it. Any given day, if you were to check in on me, I’d waver between two responses. “I’ve got this” and “I can’t do this any more” volley back and forth.
I do have a friend who checks in on me almost daily. I sent her a text message a few days back, just a quick thank you for riding along side me on this roller coaster ride. She knows me so well that the actual sound of my voice alerts her to what kind of day I am having. She notices the little changes that others might not even catch, for her they are a radar to my emotional state.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
and the pleasantness of a friend springs from
their heartfelt advice. Proverbs 27:9
And then she will let me talk through it, whatever I am feeling. She affirms me, or gets me thinking, or simply makes me laugh.
I am blessed.
