I write you this morning exhausted but filled with gratitude. The last 3 days were a flurry of friends, new and old, coming in and out of our new home. As my "bestie" returned to FVS with her family, she seemed to bring with her friends from years past and from just around the block. And as sad as it was to see her head home yesterday, it filled me with the realization of how wonderful life can be with a house filled with friends. And it filled me with gratitude.
Again, we didn't get a lot of photos because we were too busy enjoying our time together. But we did manage to catch this one of all the ladies together.
Friendship is a gift, and it's especially so for us girls. I'm so thankful for friends, old and new. Thankful for friends who live 100 yards away, and for those who live 1,000 miles away. Thankful for friends who are here for a day, a season, or a lifetime.
How about you? Take a moment to think about the friends in your life. Who comes to mind first? Who makes you smile or laugh? Who holds you up when you cry?
On Monday, I'll be launching a giveaway for teens and their besties. Today, I say thank you to all the friends in my life.
