I remember when I was little that all that I wanted were friends. I remember so many who I thought were friends that ended up being quite unfriendly. It was at that young age that I began to learn to build walls to protect my self.
Ironically, these walls had to be destroyed by me during the healing process and I began to open up to more people instead of staying inside my hedge of safety.
It’s God’s grace that gave me so many friends who are such amazing people. It’s almost like I don’t have enough time in the day to get to know all of them better, and yet I wish I could be there with each of them as they pursue their dreams.
My friends have taught me so much about struggling, living, reconciling, loving, sharing, and going out and doing. I love each person’s uniqueness and boldness to chase what it is they are after. This goes out to all whom I consider my friends. I wouldn’t be who I am without you and I am so grateful for each one of you. Thanks for being a part of my life, and thanks for making me a better man.
