Getting our bearings

Last night I was reminded of one of the truest reasons for friendship: the importance of staying connected to the people who know us so well that they can spot even the most minute changes in our being. True friends are not merely ours to adore, and to adore us in return; they are those people in our lives who are granted the rare and joyful priviledge of calling us back to ourselves, over and over and over again.

Yes indeed, they are my words. And if you check the date of that entry, maybe you'll know who I was thinking of when I wrote it. :)
