A couple of weeks ago, I had a lunch date with a dear friend and two of her little granddaughters. It is amazing what a couple of little girls can do to boost your spirits for weeks. To start off, one of them mentioned to her grandmother that I was pretty. The other one told me that I was nice. I figured the day could hardly get any better than that. I was already bouncing around on a cloud. At the end of our lunch, before walking out the door, one of the girls told us to put all of our hands in together and shouted "Friends Forever"!! It just got better!!! I left there amazed what a couple little encouraging words could do to encourage me for days and days.
I went home and recommended to Alan that he try it with his team at work. (He did not feel led to follow my advice.) I told my sister that she and her co-worker should do it in the nurse's office where she works. (They laughed about it, but didn't do it.) I told my Bible study girls and we did it before leaving for the night!!
Why not end every gathering with a "Friends Forever" cheer?? Try it!!
