Why is it that some people in your life are good friends and remain good friends even when you are separated by time and distance? When you meet up with them again, you just pick up right where you left off the last time and when they leave you feel genuinely sad that you will not see them again for a while. Some friendships are perhaps just that deep.
It is doubly amazing when that friendship extends and includes spouses resulting in four people enjoying that kind of affinity with each other. Comfort, peace, joy, understanding, camaraderie are all words that exemplify that kind of a bond or relationship. Friendships of that degree demand to be celebrated and enjoyed.
I’ve been thinking about those kinds of bonds today, both old and new, and delighting in their existence. Relationships are one of the most important elements in our lives. Interacting with others makes our highs more enjoyable and our lows more bearable.
