Today I want to say how thankful I am for friends. I'm not talking acquaintances but true friends.
"A man of many friends comes to ruin, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother(sister)."Prov.18:24
When we left California I wondered if I'd ever find friends like I had left. I do want to say that I keep in close contact with my dear friends back in our old state. Moving, when you are an empty nester, is very challenging in regards to making new friends. Through the illness of a good friend and neighbor a year ago, I got to know another neighbor-a christian sister and over the past year I have developed such a deep friendship with this gal, Kam. I am so thankful for her and for the Lord's tenderness and mercy in giving me such a close friend. Kam and I walk together, go garage-saling and share Life together. This past week, while hubby has been away, Kam has been so faithful in checking in on me and being there. Just last night she called to check on our window wells and water level, offering her husbands help if needed. It was such a gift from the Lord and I treasure it. I am so grateful for the blessings of the Lord and for His hand of protection over me. What are you thankful for today?
