When you’re feeling ill, but get a call from your friend saying “do you need a hug?”
Silently, you say “I wish, but you’re in London.”
Then you’re brain wakes up, “where are you?”
”See you in 9 minutes”, he says. And you barely have the energy to brush your hair and get out of bed.
You open the door to a smiling dear friend (You know who you are!) and the pain is still there, but for that moment the joy of a 5-minute visit subdues the intensity.
I am so thankful for the blessing, and back to bed I go a little lighter.
The biggest gift you can give is your time.
He cared enough to check I was able to have a visitor, then gave me the hug I needed.
I am so blessed to have special friends.
