Thankful Thursday


~ Friendship ~

Today I'm going to give thanks for the many different kinds of friendships in my life that God has blessed me with! :)

~ Jesus, He's my very best friend...the best friend you could EVER want! He is the only One who knows me in and out and still chooses to love me and accept me. He is everything I ever need or want and so much more! He is faithful, truthful, loving, honest, dependable, forgiving, gracious...perfect.

~ Joel, my husband is truly my earthly best friend...my soul mate. It doesn't mean we always get along or always agree on things...but if I had one choice of who to be with, it'd be him for sure! :) I respect him, admire him, adore him and love him with every fiber of my being. I am a better person for him loving me and for me loving him!

~ Mom, she's the best friend a daughter could wish for! My mom is like the energizer bunny, her care for me knows no bounds and she never tires of showing me how much she loves me. She is everything I ever wanted to be as a mom to my kids...she's my hero!

~ Erinn, she's my kindred spirit by blood and by heart. I love my sister to pieces! She is dependable and loyal, always wants what is best for me...she is one of my biggest fans. I love spending time with her, I love making her laugh...we always have the best time together! I love you, Rin!

~ There are so many other friends that God has enriched my life with...my childhood friend, Gretchen...a precious gift! My 'sista-from-anutha-mutha' Amy, a true bosom friend. My dear NTM friends...too many to name but I'll try ~ April, Karen, and Betty...friends who stood faithful and true through thick and thin. And now God has blessed us with new friends...it was so hard to leave NTM and start life over and leave behind all we knew. But God knows it all and has a perfect plan for our family. He saw fit to place a sweet family into our church! So again, God has blessed me with a new dear friend, who "is a kindred spirit after all", Melissa. :) I have been so encouraged by her and my heart has been filled once more by the hope and love that comes from a friend! xoxo

So today, that's what I'm thankful for...
