I love you!

It is said that there are only a few things you can count on in life. I personally have more than a few.  I wanted to take time and share the importance of friendship to me.

Do you have a best friend? Someone that understands you when there are no words to describe what you are thinking? Someone that even if years separate you, when you reconnect it was as if you saw them the day before?

I am blessed to say that I do.  I have been blessed to have not only one friend like this, but many.  Some are in those stages of “years separating us”, but I am confident if I seen them tomorrow, it would be as if we had never said good-bye.

Friendship is important to me, it always has been.  And even when I think of it, I feel ashamed. I am not a very good friend.  I love people, I make friends easy, but I lack the good skills of keeping in touch when life gets in the way.

I love deeply, I tell you how I feel almost very time we see each other.  I find it easy to say “I love you.” And truthfully, I really mean it. I don’t want there to be a day when, if a person thinks of me they wonder if I love them.

When my dad past away suddenly, one of the greatest blessings we all felt was that nothing was left unsaid, we all knew where we stood with him and knew we meant the world to him.  He had a way of connecting with everyone in a positive way.  I hope to carry on that beautiful legacy.

I want the people in my life to know exactly what they mean to me.  It is important in my life to tell those around me as often as occasion will permit, just how I feel. I don’t always think I do it for them, most of the time it is to assure me that I am loved as well.

One of the basest needs I have is to feel I am loved. I know this is probably an insecurity I have, but it is internal and real for me.  If I think that I have hurt someone or know someone is upset with me, it eats at me, consuming everything that I am.

I know I upset others, I am far from perfect, but it hurts my heart that I would ever offend anyone.  I love people, I love being mushy and passionate.  I wear my heart on my sleeve for all to see.  I want others to love me and feel of my love for them, so, yes, I make friends easily.

I have a wonderful family. I know of their great love for me.  But my life is not complete without my beloved friends.  In the scriptures, in John 15:13, it states: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I know that this is referring to the Savior laying down His life for us.  He was the ultimate example of love.  I hope I can show that type of example of Christlike love.

If you are one of these friends, one of those that hear me when I say ‘I love you”, know that it comes from I place I barely understand, but feel deeply.

Friends are so very important and vital to the human existence. How sad would a life be without it. Sometimes  friends can be more important than family.

Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Thank you for enriching my life with your love and friendship. I really do love you.

Thanks for reading, Love, Heather
