The Gift of Friendship

Three friends---

One helping with a newborn. One a new widow and dealing with extended family problems. One with the wedding of her youngest on Saturday. . .

Three friends. We are all grannies now. We have walked with each other through grade school, high school, college, and our birdies leaving home. Weddings, births, jobs, vehicles...kids. The death of parents. We are scattered across the country.
We know the names and ages of each others' kids and grandkids, and cute stories.
Thank You, Lord, for my three friends. Thank You, Lord, for friendship, and laughter and tears.
I know for certain that all three are Christians, so I hope we can all sit together someday in eternity and marvel at this gift of friendship. Thank you for phone calls, and letters, facebook and emails.

Yep, friendships have recently been very important to me, too.
