I really don't have one single iota to blog about, but at the same time, I want to blog. I just got home from a high school volleyball game, put Luke to bed and now am sprawled out on the couch with my trusty laptop in hand. I was reading a friend's blog when I began to think about all of the amazing friends that I have. God has truly blessed me. When I think about it, I think that some parts of my life God ordained just so that I could have friends that would last me a lifetime.
I think back to my days at good old Northwestern. I can't really think of any other good reason as to why I went there. It was a great school and all, but I met some of my best friends there. The kind of friends that no matter how long you have been apart, it feels like you had just seen each other yesterday when you finally do reconnect. There is no explanation for that kind of bond other than the bond that us sisters have in Christ. We have an eternal bond. It's fabulous, let me tell you (I love you Milk, Les and Julah!)
God has also blessed me with several friends in this small town too. When we moved here, I had never felt so alone. Seriously, alone. Then, out of the blue, I was was invited to join a mommy's group that meets once a month. These women are awesome! We share stories, laughs and even heartaches. Through that group, I have connected with my walking-partners-in-crime, Kels and Rachel. I depend on these ladies a lot to help me keep my sanity each day! We have fun together and get frustrated together. What can beat that?
Then, there's my church family. I have bonded with women who have been through what I am going through. They know me and love me for who I am. Isn't that a great feeling? My great friend, Jill, is my twin. We just "get" each other. We are exactly alike and she is the only one who understands my OCD tendencies.
Amazing. God is awesome. I am living proof that wherever we move or wherever life takes us, God will continually provide friends for me because He knows that is what I need. Companionship with other women. Good thing He knows what I need more than I know myself!
So, to all of my friends mentioned or unmentioned, I love you and feel continually blessed by each and every one of you.
