Today’s word is friend
"At some point, we'll need a little push. At another, we'll be the one who lends a hand."
The above line was from a recent blog post from my friend Mary at Play off the Page. Thank you Mary for writing the perfect definition of friendship!
I consider myself so richly blessed by my many and varied friendships. It wasn't too many years ago when I begged God for a woman to come into my life so I could have a girlfriend. I was so lonely. Oh, how lucky I am—He answered that prayer 100-fold! In the last minute of my time, here is a list of my friends:
Boy friend (my husband)
Mom friend (my mother)
Sister friend (my sisters and sisters in law)
Dearest friends (you gals know who you are)
Ladies Lunch friends (Tuesdays)
Old friends (like the song…you are gold)
Sisterhood friends (who would have thought something like cancer could connect a gal with so many instant friends.)
New friends(can’t wait to meet you!!)
Hmmm…I am thinking just like there is never enough chocolate…one can never have too many friends!
Make today a day sprinkled with a little extra joy and contact a friend to say "hello!"
