Thankful Thursdays
This will be a weekly feature in my blog,
talking about the gratefulness for the week

Today I am very excited and thankful for friends today.  The friends that you know you can always talk to, even when you’re in a bad or blah mood becauseboppy they’ve been there too.  The friends you can SKYPE with when wearing no makeup, workout clothes and your hair in a big mess on top of your head.

I am thankful for neighbor friends, the ones that give you a ride to fitness class, and then afterwards you spend time talking with at Dunkin’ dunkin-donutsDonuts <kind of counterproductive, I know> or just go to the grocery store.  The people to pray for you, even when nothing’s really wrong, indecision is just weighing on your mind.

I am thankful for the friends that sit on the phone, talk and make you smile.  For all of the like-minded friends that you meet in support groups or Bible studies, or are just going through the same things that you are.  People that you can just enjoy a cup of coffee with, and feel totally comfortable.  Are not judging you for anything, or have any ulterior motives.

Friends to sit and reminisce in a restaurant in Arlington (you know, one of those ultra hip places) about the good ol’ days 20 years ago when you were in eighth grade.  Friends who don’t mind if you say something embarrassing to them, who just dismiss your lack of thinking as something goofy done, and don’t let it define you for the rest of your life.
[Please comment if you’ve ever had this happen, or another form of logorrhea (adj: excessive talkativeness; as defined on a Starbucks mug) and just have made complete nonsense or an oopsie! slip of the tongue.

I am thankful for friends who support you no matter what; isn’t that what friends are supposed to be anyway?  Friends that understand and are there for you no matter that they are in different stages of life or situations as you.  Friends are friends, exactly how they should be.
