There is nothing better than the encouragement of a good friend. – Katharine Butler Hathaway
Like the healing power of “island time”. Like the soothing respite of shade in the hot summer sun. Like the surprise of the faery mushroom that always follows the rain. Like cookies and sweet tea on the back porch swing. Friendship nourishes the soul. Friends never have enough time to share all that’s in their heart. There is always one thing more to say. And yet no matter how many days have passed on the calendar since their last visit, when they find one another again it’s as if they had never been apart. How treasured is the one who slows down to be with you when the rest of the world speeds past. Friendship like nothing else I can think of is a beautiful beautiful choice. And how very grateful I am.
