Yesterday, a woman and I chatted briefly in Walmart. We both recognized that we knew each other, but neither one of us remembered how we were acquainted. The surprising thing, though, was that we both seemed genuinely delighted with our visit.
Last week, I got together with some friends for lunch. Our conversation turned a bit more serious than our usual jovial chatter, and as I sat there, it struck me just how much we care for each other. Several women shared some recent challenges, and I appreciated the loving, supportive comments they received. It was really a nice afternoon.
Because of blogging and facebook, it seems like every week I'm aware of another illness, death, or other challenge. With every trial, though, I also see others rally around the person who is suffering. We really are all in this life together.
Thanks for friends.
