A friend is a treasure - but friends can be quirky...relationships can be hard....we are all human! I think that is what I LOVE about Dawn Camp's new book, The Gift of Friendship - it celebrates all that friendship is - the good and the bad. It is a beautiful compilation of stories that all revolve around friendship. This is a book that I can not devour in one sitting, it must be savored slowly as in fine, dark, chocolate! It's a coffee or bedside table book that draws you in, lets you savor, and allows you to keep ruminating for hours.
Let me share one of my favorite paragraphs:
I'm putting out a call to be brave. To embrace the sweetness and depth of real friendship. To hold ourselves to a higher standard than silence. To become the kind of friend we pray our daughters have. This kind of friendship isn't easy. It's hard and messy and can come with real heartache. But it can also come with richness and love and someone to really do life with too, and it is so worth it.
Do not miss this one - it is fabulous!
