Monday Meditation: Friends + Love

The person who lets you vent because you just have to get things out, or who laughs at the absurd things you find in your lost one’s belongings, or who just shares all the random events of their day because you don’t have much else to talk about besides a funeral, or who just calls or writes to say “I love you” with no expectation of response…that is a good friend and that is love.
