Friends are our spiritual siblings to which we are bonded by love and light.
When choosing friends, we must choose carefully because these are the people who will lift us, encourage us, hold our hands and support us. It is a mutual relationship built on trust and love.
If we chose poorly, we end up in one-way relationships where the other person is only in it for what they can get or take from you. They do not support, nor are they there when things are tough.
A good friend may be in your life for a short period, but they leave a lifelong imprint on your heart. Memories of them bring a smile, and when you connect after years of absence, it is like no time has passed.
Others are lifelong, and though we may not see them every day, we speak often. Some may live far away, but the communication is never broken, and when needed, they are there to praise, encourage and even cry with you.
While they are not born into our families, they are bonded to us. Sometimes, the bond is more substantial than sibling ties. Because they are chosen, we are chosen, mutually to the benefit and joy of each.
Close friends are tied to us through spirit, and we make each other shine brighter. They know what you need even when you don’t tell them anything because of this connection.
I’ve always believed it isn’t in the number of friends you have but in the quality. Reach out and let your friends know you appreciate them. If you haven’t spoken to them in a while, call them and check to see how they are doing.
Nothing can relieve stress quicker than laughing with friends, except maybe dancing with friends. I love when I can get together with a few friends and talk, laugh, reminisce or just sit in silence.
Hugs and smiles from a friend help release tension and lift sorrow. They know what you need often when you don’t. That is because they know and love you.
To all my friends, thank you for being you. Thank you for all you’ve ever done, said and left unspoken. I am better because of each of you. I love you and consider you a gift and a blessing from God.
We know in our hearts who they are because we are bonded to them. We know because they are the friends that are our spiritual siblings.
