I have a few friends and relatives who are going through tremendous mental strain. It could be unemployment of the breadwinner, a baby who might not live through birth or if the baby does they might need surgery immediately…They each have lives I wouldn’t quantify as easy.
Yet they remember things I mentioned long ago and take the time to ask about them. Some always ask if we’ve heard anything regarding the missing lady and others check on my little niece and her cancer battle. Others ask how my back is doing or how my IBS is…It is amazing that in this world in which it’s all about me, there are people who sincerely think of others. I have acquaintances with frivolous lives, who really enjoy having fun and never mention anything serious… We all have friends who enjoy being centre of attention.
This is my early Thankful Thursday post. I am thankful for friends and relatives who remember, who care and who show concern. It means a lot and it’s not going unnoticed. Times are tough, you have serious challenges yet you are able to lay aside your own very valid concerns to care about others, to ask about things I mentioned months ago. That is true love. Thank you.
