Have you ever stopped to think about what ‘friendship is’? We think of it as this ‘grand, lifelong endeavor with people we click with, or will be in our lives for the ‘long haul’. This kind of definition of friendship may be what stops us in our tracks, from being a ‘friend’. We simply decide we don’t have that much time or energy.
The truth is, we are called to be a friend to man, each and every day! It can be as simple as a smile in the checkout, it can be holding the door open for someone, it can be a quick chat at the bank, with the teller!
Be a friend wherever your road leads you! It really is that simple! I often think about the sheer joy my dogs and horses have when they meet a new person or a new animal! They are totally in the moment! They are not worried that this person or animal is going to be in their life forever. They are just living in that present moment! No pretense, no expectations!
We can learn a lot from our animals.
Be that house on the side of the road!☀️🏡
