Five Minute Friday: Grateful

It's that time of the week again. Time to breath and let the words flow, also known as Lisa-Jo's Five Minute Friday.

Today's word: GRATEFUL

It's not everyday that you come across an amazing friend.  Friendship has always been difficult for me.  I don't want to come across too nosy, so I think that makes others think I don't care. Which isn't the case.  I put my family first, and probably don't spend enough time nurturing my friendships.

But there are some friends God has blessed me with that I am truly grateful for.

There are a group of friends who have been by my side during some very difficult times in my life.  When my husband was deployed, they were there for me.  When I had my miscarriage, they were there for me.  We laugh together. We cry together. We share inappropriate Pintrest ecards together.

Even though we are all at different stages of our lives, these women mean so much to me.  They have a special place in my heart.  I love them.  I am grateful to call them my friends.

Regardless of where life takes us, we have a bond that I believe will stay strong.  That doesn't come around very often.  God places people in our lives for a reason.  We may not understand our circumstances, but God gives us someone who will walk through that season of life with us.

  1. I could not agree more! God gives us the desires of our heart and we are so totally made for real deep friendships! I recently moved from the town I grew up in leaving all of my closest friends and have survived only by the grace of God through the women He placed in my life here!

  2. Aww love this. Friendship is so beautiful!!

  3. I am grateful for those God has given me through the various seasons of life. Friendship is essential. Thank you for your words.
    I'm visiting from FMF.

  4. Friends are such a blessing! Without them, life would be so lonely and boring :)

    Stopping by from FMF! Have a great weekend
