The Gift

I was searching under “Friendship Quotations” and came across this one, which I liked. It is a worthy, honorable, and true thing to say, something a real friend would say to you. After all, a real friend is the someone who can look you in the eye and see straight past the flaws and the struggles, straight into your heart…the true heart…the one that came to this earth unblemished, the one that carries God and your true essence. That friend can see all you truly are, and all you are truly capable of. So of course it makes sense that that same friend will encourage you to be your best with words like those of Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh:

“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” (A. A. Milne)

I would simply add: and more full of goodness than you realize.

    Although this qoute does not quite pertain to frendship, whenever I read it I think of my close friends and how the have touched my life.

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
    – Marianne Williamson
