It is serendipitous to make friends wherever you might find them, or however unlikely that person might be. Just to have someone to talk to once in awhile, who will speak the truth, even if it stings a little. We can grow so much from these relationships however brief or long they endure. What has never worked for me were forced friendships. If it doesn't naturally fall into place, its just not going to work for me no matter how hard we try. I thank the Lord for the sensible, no nonsense people He has placed in my life here and there. I have needed them so much and been so thankful for them.
