I truly believe that I have some of the most amazing friends in the whole world. I love them, I appreciate them, I couldn’t live without them. Unfortunately, I often neglect them, or take them for granted, or I’m just plain selfish and try to make the relationship all about me. Several of my friends live very far away. I’ve been terrible at keeping in touch with them, and yet they are continually initiating with me and working to keep the friendship going. One of my friends I have only known for about six months, the entire time I have been dealing with major drama in my life. She has been so incredibly patient with me, she’s listened to endless hours of crying and complaining, she’s heard the same stories over and over again… and yet she’s still there, listening and encouraging. Another good friend speaks bluntly and honestly to me. He is someone I can always count on to tell me exactly what I need to hear… notice I said NEED not WANT! He’s sensitive to my feelings, and yet he is not afraid to tell me if I’m being an idiot. That’s the kind of people I need in my life. Yet another friend prays for me on an almost daily basis. He’s an old friend from way back in the day, I haven’t even seen him in years, but he regularly reads my blog and prays. What more could a girl ask for? I am so blessed to have such awesome friends! I am thankful for you all! I’m sorry that I don’t always take the time to tell you how much you really mean to me! I hope that I can be as good of a friend to you as you have all been to me!
