So many of us are looking for true love that we often take for granted the power of real deep platonic love. This week showed me the joy of friendships and I felt it in my gut. In this was a difficult week. My father passed away 3 years ago and this week was his birthday and my parents anniversary. I was flooded with memories and emotions. My friends took care of me, stood with me and distracted me. At the same time, someone in our community lost a child and I witnessed the love of community members who gathered to help the grieving parents. I am grateful to this kindness that is shown in friendship.
