"Seeds of discouragement can not grow in a grateful heart."
Today we are thankful for friends! Now, please no one get offended, but I am not going to name people because we are surrounded by so many amazing people and I don't want to leave off a name. But, you know who you are. I think we are possibly the luckiest people in the whole world because we have been blessed with INCREDIBLE friends. The kind of friends who let you spend the night at their house when your husband is out of town and then make you breakfast in the morning. The kind of friends who come and clean your house when you are so overwhelmed that you can't do it. The kind of friends that come back early from family vacation because you need them. The kind of friends who make you laugh, out loud. The kind of friends who know exactly what you need without ever saying a word. The kind of friends who bring dinner when you have a baby (for 3 weeks!!) The kind of friends who will take your phone call anytime. The kind of friends who like to spend time with you. The kind of friends who know your parents on a first name basis. The kind of friends who you share so many memories with. The kind of friends who will laugh at you, with you and for you. The kind of friends who pray for you. The kind of friends who will tell you what you need to hear, even if you don't want to hear it. The kind of friend who you can do "nothing" with and still have fun. AMAZING friends who we could not be more thankful for.
Thank you to each and every one of you for being who you are and changing our lives by being a part of it! We pray daily for the friends Olive will have growing up, because of the important role friends play. She is already blessed with lots of friends, and she doesn't even know it!
To quote a great old show "Thank you for being a friend..." now try to get the tune out of your head! :)
