Thank You

Just a few days over two years ago, my Facebook status (thanks to Facebook’s new, quasi-creepy “__ year(s) ago today…” feature) was:

“a friend is someone who will listen to you even when you don’t want to talk and care for you even when they don’t know what’s wrong”

Today, my status is as follows:

“a friend is someone who has faith in you, even when you don’t even know what you have faith in, much less in yourself”

Last week, I stumbled upon this quotation in a book:

“You cannot always do something to help your friends, but you can always be something to help them.” ~Bertha Munro

I’m not a very emotional or social person. (No, I’m no psychopathic recluse, either–just on the introverted side.)  But over the past couple months, the only thing that has been holding me together is the support of couple close friends and the intellectual knowledge that God has a plan–a knowledge often manifested through these people.

To those people, though you may not even know who you are or how much you’ve helped: thank you.

To the rest of the world: be that person.


Feel free to insult each other, forget your manners, create straw men, ignore empirical data, and commit as many other fallacies as you can, all from the cozy, anonymous protection of your keyboard.
