"I will recognize in everyone my dearest friend."
I have been feeling kind of lonely lately.
There are a lot of people in my life, from various facets of my life, who I appreciate and enjoy spending time with and love, but it seems that they are all scattered right now.
With so many of my friends, our paths don't seem to cross every day, or even every week. There are very few people (aside from my husband and my boys) who I see and interact with every day.
I guess this is just a fact of modern life. We are all involved in so many things that we are constantly ebbing and flowing in and out of each others' lives.
While pondering this new reality (up until last year when I went back to work there were other parents I was hanging out with pretty much every day), I heard the words "love everyone," and remembered this quote. I think I might try it.
Instead of looking around and hoping to see a friend, why not see who appears in front of me today and meet that person as a friend?
