Every once in a while, I like to pause and think about how thankful I am for girlfriends.....I have been blessed over the years to have several that are as close or closer than sisters...ones who take you just the way you are, with no judgements or compliants....Gals who take the good and leave the bad and are always encouraging and inspiring you to be your best.....I like to call them kindred spirits....gals that God has placed in your life to be His hands and lips and are always loyal and always have your back.....

I am so thankful that God has added many of you to that catagory...I have found acceptance and encouragement among you and even though I have not met you in person, I feel as close to you as to many of my friends.....You will probably never know the impact you have had and are having on my life and in a postive way....Thanks for visiting me, accepting me, and encouraging me to be my best....

I did this digi collage as a thank you for each of the special women God has brought into my life....

Hugs and blessings,

  5. Yes, open and accepting hearts. Celebrating the positive and accepting and overlooking the each others negatives when necessary. Knowing we are all a work in process. Though we have not met face to face - yet - you are one of those friends to me.

    I am blessed indeed!!

  6. I can relate to your closeness to special friends.
    I have been blessed with a few very special people in my life.
    When everybody else gives up on you they just stay there and wait for the storm to blow over and resume friendships.

  7. Qué razón tienes, la amistad es una de las mejores cosas que nos da la vida.
