I had to share this.
I was just messaging with a friend.
Knowing that I have my ups and downs, he offered his phone number to me so that I can call him if I need to talk.
Me - Thanks. I think I will take you up on that. How much do you charge?
Him - You get a pro rate of nothing - All I ask for is friendship.
I was moved immediately when those words came up on my screen.
So elegant, yet so simple. A show of love but at the same time vulnerability. There is no better combination of emotions that speaks to me so intimately.
I can't think of a better response. Without any doubts, I offer him my friendship.
I thank him for making me smile.
