One Good Thing Every Day: February 16, 2013

Proverbs 18:24 GNT

Some friendships do not last, but some friends are more loyal than brothers.

“Is it okay if my two friends come to the basketball game with us?”

My consent to that question just before my second date with my husband-then-boyfriend marked the beginning of my many outings with “Dave, Dave, and Charlie.” Thankfully, we never did get kicked out of a Bridgeman’s, and I survived several viewings of Highlander.

Today, twenty-four years later, we sat around a table after the funeral for Charlie’s mom. What I failed to appreciate during those early years, I cherish now. Our families have encouraged one another through many joys and sorrows. We are more than friends. We are truly family.
