I love you. Your hurt is my hurt. But I have to work. Can your sensitive, caring nature be reserved for later?
No? Okay. This is why I'm here - to help you, to teach you, to be available when you experience the first of what will probably many issues with friends.
So what I am going to do is stop mucking with the email program that refuses to cooperate when I really need to answer my editor's email, and I'm going to take care of your heart. I'm going to tell you that friends are only human, that sometimes that they will hurt your feelings for reasons unknown to you, and that your strength and sufficiency need to come from God because He never fails us.
Friends are like the cinnamon and sugar, but God is the toast. The toast provides the nourishment and sustenance (if it is 100% whole wheat) and much of the flavor too, for that matter. You can live without cinnamon and sugar, but you can't live without toast.
There, that should handle it. All better now? Good.
Now I really have to go to work. This story on nutrition needs to be wrapped up and I have to reboot my email program.
