A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
As I shared on Monday, one of my recent dreams got sidelined. The journey is delayed while I do more work on my current book. (At least no editors or agents told me to "throw it away" like someone told best-selling author Debbie Macomber to do with her first novel.) And, I have to admit that some of the concerns raised were right.
But, it still felt horrible.
Anticipation met with disappointment. I found myself trying to rejoice with those around me at the ACFW Conference while crying inside.
And then out.
Along came three separate friends who understood the dream, felt my pain, and sang back the song of my heart until I heard faint stirrings of melody deep within.
So, thank you to Sandi, Dena, and Valerie who helped me rediscover my song.
Who is this type of friend in your life? Can you share a time when they did this for you?
