No friendship is easy. There are times when you can’t imagine your life without that friend. You make the best memories and you look forward to each visit. But then there are times when you just want to walk away and never look back. Sometimes you have to work hard to stay in touch. You have to take time out of your day to check in, see how things are going, iron out rough spots and have a little fun. You have to make that relationship a priority and nurture it and learn from it and let it grow you in ways you never thought you could grow.
I would like to introduce you to a friend of mine. We’ve been friends for almost seventeen years now. I can come to this friend with anything. Always eager to listen and understand no matter if I’m angry or sad, excited or afraid. We’ve been through a lot together. This friend is the piano and I am so thankful for it.
