You've Got A Friend

I feel so blessed to have such great friends who love Jesus. Here I will highlight a few of them. I could never highlight them all though...not enough room!
God gave me this ole girl when I was 4 years old. I can't imagine one single day on this earth without her. We have literally been through it all. No exceptions, really. We are as close as we were growing up, even with all the miles between us. She gets me like no one else does, and for that I am supremely blessed....because frankly, I am one odd duck!

She was my first friend in Jonesboro. We had an instant bond because she and I have several personality similarities. She is that friend I cannot talk to for three weeks, but the one I can drop in on with wet hair and pajama pants on late at night without a second thought. She is also the only one outside of family to ever keep Henry. She was also the only non-relative at the hospital when he was born. I love having a friend like that.

This is my newest dear friend, and one of my most favorite people. She has a heart of pure gold. We have known each other since I moved here, but just recently we have become close. We meet up before the sun comes up several times a week to run and have great conversation, and we also sit together for our Bible Study Fellowship lecture each week. The mornings I spend with her make for great days. We have so much in common. I love when she tells people we are alot a like, because I take that as a huge compliment.

This is one of my best girls. We worked together in college. She makes me laugh outloud, amazes me with her endless talents and loves my family like her very own. I love that she is also that friend that I cannot see for a few months and we pick right up where we left off and always make great memories.

I love that Henry is buddies with all my friends little kiddos. These are the little ones of my friend who I have no photo with (sorry LaShay). I appreciate how the Lord puts people in our paths we would otherwise never know or find. What a blessing making friends with this sweet, sassy friend has been...and her little cuties.

The gal in the middle is a God send to me this year. She is the one who made Caramel apples with me in a previous Food Friday post...great fun, we have. She then introduced me to the pretty gal on the right. I love how real, honest and funny these girls are. It makes me laugh just thinking about them. I love to laugh.

Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friend's counsel that comes from the heart.
