I read an email that listed some “points” to what a good friend is. One of the points stated ” A friend will bail you out of jail, but a real friend would be sitting in the cell with you!” I thought that was hilarious…but seeing that I’m to cute for prison, I passed over that one! LOL..yup I said it, deal with it! LOL
The other day, I was going through hell! I felt like I had descended into the pits of all pits, and I just wanted to scream to cry. to punch someone! Anything to get that monkey off of my back! As I sat there an continued to fume, I got up from my desk and pulled my friend away and said ” I’m getting a divorce! I can’t take it anymore! Enough iis enough!!
Cookie walked me to a back hallway and allowed me to cry, be angry and even say I wanted a divorce, all without judgment.
Siderbar, Cookie is that chick! I mean really she is about her business and understands the pit, and recognizes that she belongs in a palace! In her own words “I ain’t got time for no Peanut butter and Jelly!” Meaning she has no time for mess! Prayer warrior, Missionary appointed by God! I swear she’s like the 1 woman Red Cross!!! Oookkkkkk back to the topic…(Hey Cooooke!!)
As she took in my pain, and gave me her thoughts, she hugged me and said,” let’s pray” she went into a prayer that was appointed and anointed by God! Left no stone unturned for the enemy to use as weapons later! She covered it all! And I was so grateful. When I walked away I said, ” now THAT is a real friend!”
So my take-away on this, a real friend, will always pray for you and with you….so you DON’T end up in jail!
You are blessed, if you choose to accept it!
