Even When Old, We Need a Friend

I was recently talking to senior and we discussed the ups and downs of life. I thanked her for listening to me and she told me she sometimes thinks she’s been given the gift to reach out and support younger women (such as myself). She then went on to tell me that there are times she seeks advice from a woman even older than her. How cool. This was a good reminder that spiritually, we all need a friend that can support and encourage us no matter our age.

You’ve been with me through rough and tough
Thick and thin, until the very end

Now let me tell you what’s on my heart
I can’t stand for us to ever be apart

You’re a great person inside and out
Right now you’re who I’m thinking about

If I’m happy or sad, upset or mad
You’re one of the greatest friends I ever had
