In following the Prophet’s advice, I wanted to post a poem every day this week, instead of just on Sunday as I usually do, listing things I am grateful for. Today I wanted to #GiveThanks for the many friends I have, and the times they help me in my life.
Friends who let me talk to them
When I just need to talk,
And get it all out in the air,
Friends who sit there while I cry,
When I feel like crying is all I can do,
To let my emotions out.
Friends who accept my cookies and hugs
When that’s all I can give,
Though they need so much more.
Friends who make me feel like I belong,
When loneliness is heavy on my mind
And belonging makes it better.
Friends make life a better place,
So thank you, God, for all my friends,
And please, help me be a good friend, too.
