I just want to send out a hearty thank you to all my dear friends, many of whom I know do read this blog. After a lovely weekend (yet another in a long series of lovely weekends) spent with some of the good people I am blessed to call “friend,” I woke up this morning overwhelmed with gratitude. And so I’m going to be awkward and sentimental and a little bit silly and say so…out loud…in public.
Thank you for being my friend.
Thank you for agreeing to give up your Friday and Saturday nights here and there to spend time on my living room couch (or your living room couch) talking about life, or driving off on adventures to local pubs or dancing venues or wherever else.
Thank you for emailing me now and then to wish me a good day.
Thank you for your random text messages.
Thank you for your words of support and encouragement, or for whatever other tokens of love you give just because.
Thank you for laughing at my jokes, and even the crazy things I say and do late at night when it’s waaaay past my bedtime.
Thank you for listening to me talk and talk and talk…and for talking back.
Thank you for praying with me.
Thank you for praying for me.
Thank you for asking me to pray for you.
Thank you for your example (and each of you is an example to me)…of holiness, of kindness, of cheerfulness, of industriousness, of honesty, of discipline, of a thousand things I just can’t list here.
Thank you for being.
