Tonight, I am thankful for friendships. I underappreciate my friendships. I am an introvert and it is much easier for me to seclude myself in the sanctuary of my home. Yet, I have been constantly challenged lately in my spirit to be a part of the relationships that I am surrounded by.

I don’t feel like I am a very good friend. I don’t keep up with what is going on in each of their lives very well. I don’t converse well. I am just plain awkward.

I am thankful, though, that I have friends who are not so. They encourage me by their laughter. They have good questions. They are easily amused. They are encouraging.

What makes you feel loved by a friend? How do you tend to show love to a friend?
