A Little Something Extra

Thankful A to Z: F=Friends

F is a tough one. I first thought "Family." But also in the running was "Food." I figure food is a given. And family will hit some other posts.

Possibly coincidentally, there are a couple of friends with whom I have lost touch since getting Micah's diagnosis two years ago. But maybe it's not a coincidence. Maybe they don't know what to say. After a few months of reaching out to them, I gave up. If I think about it too much, I get sad.

But those friends aside... I have felt a crazy amount of love expressed by our friends near and far. Thick and thin... faithful friends. I'm not the easiest person to love. But there are some dear women in my life who have been there to listen, on the phone or in person. They've given advice, or simply been silent. They've cried with me. Laughed with me. Prayed with me (some at 5:30 on Monday mornings!). And never did they try to make me feel guilty for what I feel.

So, thank you, sweet friends, for your faithful support of me and our family during this journey we're on. I love you!

Well, I can't claim 5:30 a.m., :) but I'm thankful to count you as a friend, and I'm really enjoying your thankful posts! Praying for you during the move!
