People are often hesitant to say that they love a friend… Some may think it sounds extreme, that perhaps people will misunderstand, as if love was reserved for only romance and family. But what’s wrong with loving someone who brings out the best in you, who props you up when you need it?
Consider yourself blessed if you have that kind of friend. That friend who goes way beyond the “minimum daily requirements” for friendship. In some ways, they're closer to you than family because they care about you – not because of any obligation, but because they choose to. And that is a gift for which you not only like them, you love them…. and are more than grateful to have them in your life.
