The blessing of friends

by in Peppa

I have been keeping a list of thing I am grateful for the last few days but our blog site was down for some reason. We are back in action now though, so the list continues…

I guess the last week I have really been grateful for the friends God has placed in my life. I have been beyond blessed with a few really close friends who speak wisdom and truth into my life. I treasure each moment of laughter, tears and just the ability to do life together. Two years ago I was very much alone besides my family, God has graciously chosen to grant me the gift of friendship while I have been here in New Zealand. I know it might sound simple but just the ability to relate and have people know me and be known by me is enough to make my heart want to burst. Thanks Papa for all the wonderful people you have put into my life. How blessed am I?
