To My Friends


This post is dedicated to my best friends.

Good friends aren't a rare as I used to find them...

Or, as someone very like me once said, "Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think."

I have been so blessed by God this last year. For the first time ever, I got to say I had real friends. REAL friends.
 
Tears come to my eyes.
 
I want to whisper it. I want to scream it!
 
 
 
{Except I hate to fist punch}
 
 
They make me laugh, smile, cry. They understand me. They love me. When I mess up, they forgive me. They love God, too. And that is the most important.
 
I just feel the need to brag about my friends right now.


 
 
Seriously, what is life without your important people?
 
 

 
 
Thank goodness! I know so many times when I have done {ahem, things I will not mention} with friends!!!!
 
 
This one is for Treskie!
 

 
 
I remember when I would pray to God every day for a real friend. Someone to talk to, to love. Someone who would WANT to spend time with me and love me. Someone who loved Him and wanted to talk about the things He was doing in their life and hear what He has done in mine. I prayed for so many years.
 
And then, all of a sudden, He answered.
 
 

 
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
 
Thank you, Grace!
 
Thank you, Jonnah!
 
Thank you, Cait!
 
Thank you, Rachel!
 
Thank you, Joanna!
 
Thank you, Alejandra!
 
Thank you, all my dear friends with no blogs!!!!!!
 
Wow! I am loved!
 
I have REAL friends.
 
Wow.
 
 
 

And I believe this with all my heart!!!
 
For Cait. ;)
 

 
 
I am sarcastic to my best friends {and no one else}. It is my thing with them. So, if I have been sarcastic with you, beware. You are one of my best friends. ;}
 
 
 
 
That one was just for fun. ;)
 
So I am going to do another one.
 
 
And because you can never have too much fun...





And, at last, I just can't resist telling you all about the best friend of all!!! Jesus! Yep. He's my bestie. Without Him...I wouldn't even be alive. Literally! I am sooo thankful for Him and for all He has done for me and for everything He will ever do for me!!! Wow. I am sooo blessed to know my Savior and have a personal relationship with Him. He guides my every step, every day, every moment. I have no fear because He is at my side and does sooo much for me. He is the best.

Ok.

Here's an acronym for you.





And now I will close, because you seriously don't want me to gush on anymore. ~_*

  6. I have two very dear friend - one is my sister. The other is my neighbor whom, without, I don't know what I do. She is ALWAYS there for me and I feel very blessed to have her. My Best friend in the whole world. She is kind and compassionate and always willing to hold out a hand. My sister is goofy and crazy and just what I need after a long day. They are both more special than I will ever be able to say.

    I'm so glad I found your blog and YOU. I love finding friends. Its nice to have real friends. "Friends are people you don't have to talk to all the time. You can go without talking for weeks. But when you do talk, its as if you never stopped."

    God Bless!

  10. You know what...I just noticed something. You and I are really alike in this way. I prayed a long time for friends like that, too. And this past year I got them. I am soooooooo thankful God has given me friends who will help me grow in my relationship with him and will love me and want to talk with me as much as I do them. :D

I'm sincerely wondering if you are going to comment. Given you just read that blog post (or maybe skim read, at best, or maybe you've just skipped to the bottom). But, either way, whether you read it or not, NOW you have no doubt that I am crazy, are wondering if I am worthy of your time, and if it even matters that you say something. BUT, it does!!! Drop me a line! Can't tell you I will always respond coherently, but I WILL respond! And the comments... Well, they rather make my days. <3
