Thankful for my friends

How many of you remember slumber parties?  The laughter that surrounded the night echoing through the homes until your parents would come to the doors and remind you to laugh with a little less gusto?

I do.

I treasure these memories.  I treasure these girlfriends.  Oh, some I have just facebook status updates on, some I pass in the grocery store and some I don't even know where they are...but I still treasure the friends of long ago!

I also give thanks for my friends that walk the path with me now.  Friends that I study God's Word...Friends that will tell me the truth even if it hurts...(thanks for being such a good friend)  friends that we laugh and share truth with...oh what a gift!

Yes, friends I treasure you and I give thanks for each of you!

Last night, as some of us were together studying God's Word and we shared the whole time my heart was filled with joy because of each of you!  The honesty, the vulnerability, the realness that is offered to all of us, but most of all the love.  A love that God filled me up with...a reminder that He brought us all together to study about Him.  So, today I thank God for this beautiful gift of friendship that He gave all of us...whether long ago or still today each of you have touched my life in a way that only YOU could!  Thanks for being special and being you!

Sweet blessings,
