"The Difference Between the Almost Rght Word and the Right Word is Really a Large Matter-It's the Difference Between the Lightning Bug & the Lightning

Do You Have a 2 a.m. Friend

Who is your 2 a.m. friend? Who can you call on at 2 a.m. to talk with, to laugh with, to cry with, and to share a personal secret with. That friend that you turn to when there are peaks and valleys. That sister friend that will give you her last, unconditionally, with no expectations of getting it back. If she has, you will have.

Well, I have a few 2 a.m. friends. A recent event happened in my life and thank you God my 2 a.m. friends were in abundance. I consider myself a strong and powerful force. There are times that even the strong will stumble and fall. It was the uplifting words and the strong shoulders that were provided to me that pulled me through. It was their constant reminder that God did not allow me to get this far to have me to fail. It was those moments of sheer frustration and despair that it was easier to laugh then to cry and then there were those moments that all I could do was cry. But through it all, it was that angelic voice at the other end of that phone or the gentle touch of a hand rubbing my hand that eased my soul and spirit. It was that offer of an early evening dinner and then a movie that allowed me to remove myself and to escape the upheaval that was swirling around me.

During this moment in my life, my 2 a.m. friends showed up and showed out. I believe that when you surround yourself with Godly people you will be blessed with 2 a.m. friends. I thank them for their prayers, their humor, their words of wisdom and their love for me.

Are you a 2 a.m. friend? Are you a beacon of light during the storm. Most importantly, can you be reached at 2 a.m. to be that friend? Who is your 2 a.m. friend.

Peace and Blessings,
