Do you smile when you see certain phone numbers
pop up on your cell phone or on Caller ID?
There’s a good chance that number might belong to a friend.
We all need people in our lives who bring a smile to our face.
People who affirm us, who lift us up, who encourage us.
People with whom we always feel accepted.
People who stick with us through thick and thin.
People who make us laugh out loud.
Note to Self: Take more photos of friends. The photo albums are severely lacking in that department. Probably because we Moms are always behind the camera. Or maybe because we’re enjoying our visit so much we forget all about the camera! I have so many sweet friends I wanted to include in this post, but couldn’t find good photos of them… So please all know that you are loved! (And so I filled in with some of our girls’ BFF’s!)
Lack of photos or not, the point is that we need friends in our lives to help us Take Joy! We need to bear each other’s burdens, guide each other on the journey, and give each other good counsel. And most of all, we need friends that are positive and encouraging, and that lift us up, just by the thought of them.
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.
Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand.
“I just wanted to be sure of you.”
