Thankful Thursday

I have so much to be thankful for. I seem to always mention my kids and hubby, all of whom I am crazy about! (In case you haven't noticed by now.) I also tend to mention my family, which is wonderful! No in-law issues here. But God has also blessed me with some amazing friends. Amazing women who are always there (or here?) for me. So today, I am going to tell you about an amazing friend of mine. Those of you who know her, see if you can guess who it is.

This woman has been blessed with a servant's heart. She loves to serve at church, her friends, her family, and yes, even total strangers. Sometimes we will meet for breakfast way too early in the morning, just so we can hang out and talk and share. I can tell this gal ANYTHING and know it goes no further. She listens to me rant and rave and doesn't bat an eye when I come back later to apologize. She just accepts me in all of my humaness.

She is an inspiration in her desire to know the Word of God. She is so open about what she doesn't know that it allows the rest of us to be just as honest.

She is a mom of two, caretaker for many more, and yet always has time to talk when I call. She's an amazing listener.

She is a gorgeous lady, inside and out and I am blessed to know her and call her friend!
