October 27--The Best Friends

True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in the worth and choice.  --Ben Johnson

    Our family has been talking about the wedding, now that we've had a couple days to rest. It was not a large crowd, approximately 60 guests. However, we've all agreed that it was a gathering of the very closest friends and relatives. One of the groom's friends flew in from Virginia on the wedding day, and flew back home the next day. That is some "worth and choice." There were others, too, who traveled great distances. Even with 60 folks, the event felt very intimate because of the closeness of the friendships. 
    I've had lots of friends over my lifetime. I have been blessed. Those whom I am still in touch with today are very much of "worth and choice." Johnson's quote tells me that the number of Facebook friends is irrelevant... it's the number of friends we really want to spend time with in person that counts. Amen!
