Thought for today:

‘In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends.’

— John Churton Collins

I have had some periods of adversity and I certainly learned who my friends were.

Adversity can be a harsh spotlight on our relationships.

Yesterday I learned of the death of a man who supported me in adversity a few years ago.

He was not really a friend, we didn’t know each other that well.

But when the chips were down for me, he was supportive, and I valued his wise counsel.

May he rest in peace.
