I text her: Today I am sad. I need encouragement. Within ten minutes I had a text telling me that there would be good days, and bad days and that I was loved and valued and that the future was bright.

I text her: He is breaking up with me. Within minutes she was over, with clothes, a toothbrush and arms to cry in.

I text her: I have a boyfriend! Within moments I got a calling screaming with excitement.

I text her: I got a promotion: Within minutes we were arranging celebrations.

I text her: He just died. Within an hour we were sitting have coffee crying together.

That all happened in the last 9 months. The good, the bad, the ugly…(and that’s not all)…through it all my friends were there to support me, to love me, to be there for me…Recently I said to a friend that I found it difficult to accept others help or sympathy, almost like it was too much. I didn’t want to believe that I was good enough to have that much love in my life.

But you know what? It’s not too much. I bet you would do anything for your friends. You would stay up with them in the middle of the night when they needed a hug and a shoulder to cry on. You would buy them cake, just because. You would celebrate the new boyfriend, job or even the simple fact you had a really good day.

You deserve the support and love of your friends because you would do the same for them. They are so.worth.loving and…You are so.worth.loving.
