Good friends!

TODAY IS THANKFUL THURSDAY!  And today I am THANKFUL for good friends!

Friends that can sit on SKYPE and talk for over an hour while I’m still in my pajamas!

19 month old friends with strawberry blondish curly hair stuck in a ponytail that make their enormous adorable toothy smile  look that much cuter!

Friends that have not talked with in 20 years, who still remember you as a 7th grade cheerleader!  YES JENNY SWEENY!!

All the Springfield All-stars! who I know I could randomly call on (even though not seeing in 10 years or more) and it would be just like yesterday!

Friends who write books on the New York Times bestseller lists, which I received an UNCORRECTED PROOF advanced copy in the mail by signing up to write a book review [Of which I TOTALLY need to get finished reading & writing!] Also a cheerleader friend, SARAH McCOY!

Friends getting together at Bible study to delve into the book of Revelation, then get caught up deciphering the history and importance of the number 7, and socializing about other RANDOM issues.

AND friends from support groups who email just to check in and see how you’re doing after an dramatic episode that happened recently at the last meeting.

There is so much to be thankful for; I love the support and socialization that I have a chance to participate in, even at times in which I am
questioning my purpose
and feeling very socially isolated,
they help me know that I am not.
