  1. Sara,

    It is much more than a Facebook request, it is an investment, it is nurtured, and it is guarded as something precious. Your Nana sounds like such a heart lovely woman, and you wanting to be like her reflects her mentoring to you by action, and also reflects your the loveliness of your own heart as you’ve come to an adult understanding of really how dear your Nana was to those she loved and cherished.



    • Thanks Joanne for your additional insight. Friendships are serious business! You do see lives of loved ones differently as an adult. Be blessed. Sarah

  2. Thank you for this great reminder to be intentional in our friendships. I’ll be calling my girlfriends now. 🙂

  3. This is so so good. Thank you for sharing your Nana’s legacy with us – what a gift it is to have a friend willing to put everything on hold so she can focus just on you.

  4. Sara,
    Today’s youngsters don’t truly understand what friendship is and takes. They think they can like someone on Facebook & poof instant friendship. Your Nana really knew what it took to be a true “covenant” friend. Nothing hurried or rushed just taking the time to care & listen to others. Sharing life with another is a special thing. God has blessed me with one truly amazing covenant friend. We talk on the phone several times a week sharing life’s ups and downs.
    Blessings 🙂

  5. I LOVE THIS! My mother-in-law sounds a lot like your Nana. She is a friend to many. Thank you for the reminder that what seems like “doing nothing,” is really doing some of the best work of intentional friendship. And this: “We can’t ‘like’ our way into someone’s life.” That’s some truth right there. Thank you for sharing!
