"Deep friendships could lead to transformation. I saw that it’s possible to transcend the limits of your skin in a friendship. That a friend can take you out of the boxes you’ve made for yourself and burn them up. This kind of friendship is not a frivolous connection, a supplementary relationship to the ones we’re taught and told are primary – spouses, children, parents. It is love." ~ Emily Rapp
I pray you have this in your life. I came across this and recognized it immediately. It didn't take long for me to say "I know exactly how that feels, I intimately know what it is she is describing."
I realize too how very few of my friendships fit this description. And that's alright. That makes sense. Deep friendships are a gift, rare and precious and by its nature, few. It is grace. And yes, it is love.
"I am large. I contain multitudes." - Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
