When friends reach out, our souls connect.
Something indescribable fills the air as we speak about
our lives, our successes, troubles or fears.
It is about being there for one another
~ picking up where we left off ~
instinctively knowing what to say or do!
The rules are quite simple.
We open our hearts, tell our stories and,
if asked for, give or receive heartfelt counsel.
When we speak of life’s challenges ~
understanding and reassurance is offered.
We cheer for each other and revel in delight
when there is a victory!
And, when sharing our visions and dreams,
we encourage each other to go forth
to unearth and embrace our unique potential.
Through the ties of time and shared history,
the circle remains unbroken.
Because you see ~ when friends reach out ~
they are a gift, a cherished treasure!Laurel D. Rund (c) 2010
