The holidays always seem to be a crazy time of year. People are running around to find the perfect gift, buying all of the ingredients for their traditional holiday meal, and tying up loose ends before the new year rolls around.
But when all of the gifts have been opened, all of the food has been eaten, and the holiday glimmer has faded, who is next to you when the dust settles? Those are the people who make my world go ’round.
On New Year’s Eve, I received a package from 4 very special women in my life. It was unexpected and a wonderful surprise. In it, were some lovely gifts and pictures from fun memories we had in 2014. The smile on my face was indescribable. My heart felt like it was overflowing with gratitude that 4 women in different states, had come together to send me love in a box. Later that night, I welcomed in the new year, surrounded by loved ones.
Reader, who is there when the dust settles? When the lights are turned off at night and the world is going to sleep, who do you turn to?
Be grateful for those people and don’t, for even a second, take them for granted. When you find friends who are with you through the highs and lows of life, they are true friends. And true friends, are not easy to find.
I’m deeply thankful to say, if the quality of friends determines how wealthy you are, I’m a very wealthy woman. Indeed.
