A Friend in Need

We move through life, adding and subtracting people, or

having them taken from us through their leaving or death.

They form a part of our identity, our idea of ourselves.

They help to normalize our idea of reality, they (hopefully)

help us feel loved and supported, and help bear witness to

the story of our lives. They're also an opportunity to love, to

care, and to share the miracle of life with others. I hope you have

friends, and that you're taking the time to appreciate them, and

they you.
