Kindred Spirit Friendships
Recently I had an email from a blog writer, Liz Lamoreaux.
You can find Liz, here
She was talking about finding kindred spirit friendships.
It really struck a cord with me.
It caused me to start thinking about what a kindred spirit friendship is
and how you find a friendship such as this.
Liz said: "I've found people willing to share their stories of the hard
of the grief, of the beauty, of the joy found in all of it."
Is that what a kindred spirit is?
The more I thought, the more I found people sharing.
“When you encounter someone you
were destined to meet the conversation will take flight as if it were on the
wings of angels, complete strangers confiding in each other as if you were
lifelong friends.” – Kevin Hall
"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think.
It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world." -Anne
Shirley, "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery
Anïas Nin, the bohemian French author said, "Each
friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
Wikipedia describes this as: Someone
who shares similar thoughts, feelings, someone who is close in temperament and
nature to yourself, to whom you have a rare spiritual link that is very special
and you can’t quite explain.
From these quotes and thoughts found in my research it seems that a kindred spirit is someone
that thinks like me, just clicks upon meeting, has the same spiritual awareness, an invisible
bond, and someone that just gets me.
A true sister or brother of the heart.
Do you have a kindred spirit friend?
How did you find that special friend?
Do you treasure the gift you have been giving?
A kindred spirit friend is a treasure more precious than jewels.
