I was blessed today by a really sweet compliment from a friend who I haven't had a chance to spend time with in a while. It made me think of all the many people God has placed in my life to add....Sparkle...to my days. Sometimes in small ways with an infectious laugh or a smile or a simple vote of confidence. Other times with wise advice, a prayer or just a listening ear. Each one however adds their own very specific blend of brilliance and I am amazed at how much my life would miss them if they were not there. True friendships are like that though...they add value. Kind of like adding on to a house...there are small and seemingly insignificant improvements like a new faucet or a modern light fixture and then there are the more noticeable ones like a new garage door or modern windows. Then of course there are the impossible to miss ones like entire new additions. Each one is different in many ways, but they each add value to the house. Well.....each genuine friend is like that...they may be part of a small or large inner construction project, but no matter how large or small the contribution, they add value to the house that is our life.
My prayer is that for all those that help renovate this house of mine, that I may give back by helping to add value to theirs.
To all of my friends...casual and intimate, new and long term, thank you for adding SPARKLE to my life and helping add value to my life!
