Today I got to spend time with a long time BFF at her association pool then having lunch at her home. It was wonderful to spend the special time with her. I could talk with her about my grandboy and she doesn't understand completely but she also isn't judgmental and doesn't show pity, just love! I am so thankful for her!
Then I went to other friends' this afternoon and was invited to dinner. I am not a big steak lover and that is what they were having but I do like salad and baked potato and watermellon that they were also having. I was torn about what to do, came home to feed Sandy Claws and make a decision. Well, I decided to go and am glad I did. Their neighbors, whom I know, were there and had all the condiments for the potatoes, the steaks were filtes and were tender and delicious and there was no painful conversation. I am thankful for these friends also.
Friends are the helpers who have gotten me through the past eight months, haven't let me crawl into a hole of blackness and depression. They are what keeps me going when the whole world seems to be crashing in on me. They are the ones who care but who can be objective when I am unable to see beyond my pain and afraid to see the light because it might be a freight train at the end of the tunnel. They are the ones who can tell that is isn't a train but light from an unending source.
Thank you God for friends. They are one of the ways You show your love when things look so dark.
