On our (Chad) way out from a museum we toured last Sunday, we passed by its Gift Shop. While waiting for Chad to pick-out a book he wanted to buy, I browsed through the shop’s greeting cards department.
I’m sure you’ve seen gondola stands of cards for all sorts of occasions. As I spun the gondola, a card caught my attention at the “Friendship” and “Encouragement” section with a quote:
“When you cry, I’ll dry your tears. When you fall, I’ll pick you up. When you rise up, I’ll rise with you. And, if you move on, I’ll always be here for you when you need me again.”
I had chills when I read it. Now…that’s friendship. I bought the card and that night, I gave it to Chad before we went bed. I kissed him good night and whispered “I will always be here for you.”
