Good friends are wonderful treasures. Friends lift us up when we are down and help us overcome major hurdles in our lives.
Consider Helen Keller, who was the first deafblind to earn a Bachelor’s of Arts degree. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through Helen’s isolation of a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom.
Anne was a true friend to Helen, and Helen said: “Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”
A true friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
Are you that true friend to someone? Who are they? Are you rekindling their spirit and singing the words of their song back to them during their time of need? I hope you are. If not, reach out to them today. Maybe one day, someone will do the same for you.
