You Find Out Who Your Friends Are

spanky-alf2.jpgI remember John Eldredge once said something in one of his books about thinking of the people you would call at 2 in the morning when your world just collapsed around you. That’s a mark of friendship isn’t it? Think about it. You just got some news (good or bad) and it’s 2am, who would you call? I’m pretty sure that most of us don’t set out with tragedy in mind, but when it happens, who are the people that show up in a heartbeat?

I have told Heather several times “If I was ever going to go into war, I would want to take so-and-so with me because I know they would have my back”. There are a few guys in particular that I know would drop what they are doing and say “let’s go”! Here’s the question….would they say the same about me? Have I been the kind of friend in return that they could list as the ones that “show up” when the times are good, bad or normal?

In 2008, it would be my hope that I return that favor, or those favors as often as they have been extended. When a friend launches an idea am I the first to say “count on it, I’ll be there”? If a friend is in need and I can somehow assist, will my first reaction be to grab the opportunity? To the guys that have been there, done that, led me, stood behind me, walked beside me, I thank you. Hopefully in 2008 you will find out from me who your friend is too.

    Thanks Stef! That picture sort of looks like us doesn’t it? Maybe someone took it when we were kids (and you were still a Tar Heel Fan) :)

    If that is you two then who looks like Spankey? I’m sorry, someone had to say it. :)

    based on height, I would say that would be me. Spanky’s got more hair, but who doesn’t have more hair than I do?

    Yep, I would be Alfalfa. I slick my hair down like him! Maybe I need to start sporting the Alfalfa “sprout” he had on his head!
