For your consideration…..

All friends are gifts. True friends are blessings to us. It is true friends that our message is about today.

What is a true friend? Certainly they love us unconditionally. They listen and more importantly hear what we are saying. They feel our joys and sorrows in their very own soul. They are always there for us. That is a lot of responsibility and true friends take it very seriously.

We are reminded today that true friends point to the positive. They do not let their friends dwell or wallow in the negative. True friends tell their friends what they need to hear not necessarily what they want to hear. They point to the future and bless and leave the past behind. True friends point to the lessons and blessings and do not belabor on what can not be changed.

Today we are reminded to be a true friend and be grateful for the true friends we have in our lives.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……
