...friends. Old and new. Near and far. It's late and I will come back to this, but I did not want to miss my daily post. I will add to this tomorrow, but for now - know that I am thankful for YOU!
So...I am adding to this post. I was able to spend some time with some friends this Saturday that I had not seen in about 2 years. It was a time of healing and happiness.
I spent time with a friend and we talked about death and life and she spoiled my babies and made me laugh. Thank you, Desiree!
I got news that someone far away, that I've never met, generously gifted something to me...I am awed and humbled. Thank you, Lee!
On Wednesday I was filled with confused feelings, sadness, happiness, conviction and YOU felt it. Thank you, Miriam!
Today, I spent the day at church and was with some of my best friends in this world. We sang, laughed, taught, cried and prayed together. Thank you, Lorany!
We have a new family at our church and I really enjoyed getting to know them a bit more today.
Tomorrow, I will be going to the funeral service of a dear friend of mine. I did not get a chance to say bye to you, Sally. I will miss you and your beautiful spirit.
Friends are definitely a gift. I have learned so much about friendship with each year of life. I know that I can love someone and care about them and it not be returned. I know that I will be real and I may not always be understood. I know that I can put down my guard and trust. I know that sometimes, taking the chance of maybe being rejected means that you also just might be accepted. ...and that is good.
