I’ve learned that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
Circumstances pull our emotional resources in a series of convoluted directions, while simultaneously we continue down a path that we would presume we are following.
Even at our most drained and exhausted states, all it takes is hearing from someone that you love and all of your energy instantly rallies to their benefit.
I think this is one of the most precious qualities of being a great friend; the knowledge that you would go the distance for that person regardless of external variables.
With that in mind, I would say that true wealth in life is both feeling this way about others in your life while simultaneously knowing in your heart that they feel the same about you.
We do not get to take even the smallest trinket that we have collected with us after we die, and we may leave all of our trinkets for others, but truly immortality is the fond remembrance that we leave in the hearts and minds of people whom we have touched.
It is only in the love they feel after we have left this planet that our true value can be measured.
I hope your Sunday is off to a beautiful start!!
