With November being the month of Thanksgiving I decided that each Thursday leading up to Thanksgiving I would share something I am Thankful for. This Thursday, I am thankful for the gift of friendship. Below are some pictures of some of the incredible friends I have been blessed with, the pictures are not the best quality like many others on the blog since they were taken spur of the moment with cellphones, but they capture a wonderful gift that I am so grateful for, friendship.
I spent many years dreaming about and praying for a group of friends like the ones you read about in books, you know, the ones that are always there for you and you can call at any time of the night for anything. However, they kept not showing up and I began to wonder if they even existed, but then, three years ago they suddenly showed up everywhere, God had finally answered my prayer and every single one of them was well worth the wait to call these special people my friends.
Within the past several years we have been there for each other through the good and the bad, the fun and the scary (can we say haunted houses?) and on so many adventures. My life has been changed for the better by these wonderful people who have shown me on a whole new level what it is like to be a part of the family of God, so for my first Thankful Thursday of this year, I am so thankful for the gift of these Forever Friends.
Comment below something that you are thankful for, and if you are doing a Thankful Thursday post on your blog I would love to read it, please leave the link in the comments!
