Vital and Valuable

Today's reading: Proverbs 17:1-28

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17).

I'm a people person which translates to connecting to a lot of people and having quite a few people I call friends. But out of this group, I have two best friends--my husband Jeff and my sister Ginger. They are the people who immediately came to mind as I read Proverbs 17:17. Why? Because they have demonstrated time and again loving me at all times (even when I haven't been very loveable) and standing beside me through times of adversity. The relationship of "friend" that I have with each of them is vital and invaluable to me. 

Who would you call a true friend from your past and present? Have you told them lately how much you appreciate and value them? What are some ways you can return friendship to them this Christmas season? Tami
