My friends are the bedrock and blessing of my life. I have known some of my dearest friends since kindergarten as little girls. And then there are the friends we gather as we grow up and live on our own. They too are part and parcel of our lives.
Friends are those who become part of our families, our lives, our hearts and our total being. Friends share in ways that make our lives richer, fuller, better. It doesn’t matter if we have known each other since childhood; a good friend is a good thing no matter how long or short we have been friends.
Ever notice when you meet someone for the first time that you get that ‘aha!’ feeling? That usually means that you feel a connection; a possibility for a new friend. If you have ever read the “Red Thread Theory,” it all makes sense. The Red Thread Theory is this:
From Wikapedia: “The Red Thread of Fate, also referred to as the Red Thread of Marriage, and other variants, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the Finger of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation as they are “their true love”.
I also believe that the Red Thread Theory is about friendship as well. There are people who come into our lives and make us better; more loving, more kind. A dear friend is a blessing, a gift, and a joy. How lucky are we to have such friends?
