How often I take for granted the love that is shown me by my friends. I’m reminded today that our mortal lives are not forever, and that our friendships on earth are but fleeting gifts.
May I remember to listen more, and say, “thank you” and “I love you” more to my friends. May I seek to understand what others are feeling, before telling them what I am feeling. May I be a less selfish friend, today and always.
I place in Your hands
My relationship with my friends.
May I be a better friend,
More supportive and understanding
And giving and compassionate.
Thus may my relationships
Fulfill their purpose
And make all of us whole.”
