Wake Up Call! – Cherished Friends


Cherished friends are to be cherished!

I’ve just spent a few days with several cherished friends. The kind of friends for whom explanations are unnecessary, whose love and care is a given and whose presence is joy. One evening someone asked if we’d each heard from a mutual acquaintance who only contacts any of us when she is asking for financial support for her self-absorbed projects.

It was a clarifying moment. As I looked at the faces of my friends I realized we had each made choices about what we treasured in one another.

More than choices we invest the time and energy to be together. I felt blessed. And I felt gratitude for the acquaintance who calls us to ask for support for her projects – that takes a different passion, courage and commitment.

I was content to settle into our remaining time together and do no more than be present to one another. It was a moment to be cherished with cherished friends. What cherishing will you or I do today?


  • Be aware of those whom you cherish and give thanks
  • Be present to how you nurture the relationships that become cherished.

Notice how your life is richly blessed by the ones you cherish and who cherish you!
