The person who shuns the bitter moments of friends will be an outsider at their celebrations. Proverbs 14:10 (TM)
I am blessed with friends who have been with me through my life’s bitter moments and celebrations. A few have been there since my youth, a few came further down along life’s path. But I know I can pick up the phone at any moment and they are there.
I will forever remember a phone call I received when I was getting slapped around by life and felt like I was fighting a losing battle. "I’m right there in the trench with you," my friend said. "I’ve got your back."
I also remember the image of a photograph from my wedding of that same friend raising a glass to present a toast.
Every man needs friends like that.
