Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.”
My friend, Pat, had abdominal cancer. She tells the story of a friend who shared Pat’s adversity throughout her long cancer journey.
Pat recalls, “Often when a person has a long-term illness, cards and phone calls become less frequent as time passes. However, one friend has continued to remember me with a postcard every day—322 cards so far! The postcards have an encouraging word, a humorous saying, or words of wisdom that challenge me and give me hope. I have been deeply touched by such long-term care.”
Can you be that kind of friend—who keeps on caring through a friend’s long illness?
