When I first read this I wasn’t sure it was worthy of a Grace Drop. I put it in my file and left it for quite a while. Then I began looking for more stories as the seventh year got underway. I read it again. For some reason it seemed to take on a whole new meaning. C. S. Lewis once wrote something like this: “You know you have made a friend when someone says, ‘Did you feel that way too?’” It is knowing that someone has been there, not just that they agree.
