Thankfulness Series #24 Thomas Ward

I once read a text on Spiritual Friendship by Aelred of Rievaulx because I saw it quoted somewhere and thought, this must be a great book.  It was not.  The one quote I had already read was the great value.  What is the worst part of this story is that I cannot now recall the quote itself.

I can tell you that I know a good true spiritual friend when I see it.  It is rare.  It is special. It is good. Tom Ward has become one of my dearest and truest spiritual friends.

Tom and I have often commented on how it feels like we have known each other for a very long time, but, we have really only been close for the last two or three years.  Tom is tremendously wise. Tom is a great listener and counselor. Tom has given definition to what a spiritual friend is.

I am grateful for his influence in my life.
