In thinking about today, there was definitely an overarching theme of “friendship.” Whether it was the friendship shared between me and my housemates who either confide in me or I in them, or whether it’s a friend who’s in town on business but has time to come down and give a hug, friendship definitely played a strong role in the day’s activities. In thinking about who my friends are here, I could not express enough how blessed I feel to have seven housemates whom I consider friends, two bosses whom I am developing friendly relations with, a host family who I have not met in person yet but am in contact with, and all my friend back home or across the nation. Truly, if there is one grace I have, it’s that of friendship, and God bless everyone of them for blessing me. Maybe I’m digressing though. In short then, today has been a day where I’ve been caused to think about friendship and how it plays a role in my life. I’m sure there will be more friendships to come as my YAV year continue on. Until then though, may God bless you in all you do.
