Friends

What would I do without my friends? They are each a gift from the Lord and I am so thankful for them. Over these last few months, they have listened to me, cried with me, prayed for me, laughed with me, brought me meals, traveled many miles to see me, helped to care for my children, oohed and awed at the sight of my newborn, brought me gifts, brought me companionship to break up a long day alone with kids, provided playmates for my son, overlooked my son's tendency to bite, emailed me words of encouragment, gave me words of wisdom, loved me with all of my weaknesses and flaws, and shared lots of mommy stories to remind me that I am not alone.

Thank you, God, for my friends!

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
