To the sister friends who…
let you cry and snot on them when life has fallen apart,
rescue you from having nowhere to sit in a crowded lunch room when you’re the new kid,
see God in everything and can’t wait for you to be the first one they tell,
call you a “sister-in-life” when you are no longer a sister-in-law,
pray with you and for you and wish they could carry your burdens,
laugh so hard with you that you snort a little and then laugh even louder at you,
console you when the world has been cruel and unyielding,
visit you in the hospital when your health hasn’t gone as planned,
remind you about the time you had spinach in your teeth at prom,
pass you in the hall at work with a smile on their face and a roll of their eyes knowing you can read their mind,
bring you a cupcake just in time to satisfy the urge to stress-eat,
snail-mail a gift card to Starbucks with a note saying they just wanted to lift you up,
remind you of all the wonderful qualities that make up the amazing soul you are,
you can call day or night for any reason in the world and they would be right by your side…
I thank God for you - sister friends - He is certainly good to allow us to know and love each other here on earth before spending an eternity praising His name. He knows exactly who to put in our lives at just the right time.
“A friend loves at all times…” Proverbs 17:17
Share this with a sister-friend to honor her and tell her how much you appreciate and love her.
