friends make a birthday better…. May 28, 2008

Filed under: friends and fun.... — kgarrard @ 2:23 am



i turned 33 this past friday….. and it has been a great few days of celebration.

i must say that i feel so very loved and blessed by many people.

proverbs says “there are “friends” who destroy each other,but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.”  i have experienced this in my life.  

i have chosen to give my life to the journey of seeing true friendship develop in the relationships god places in my path.  it is a tough journey — full of ups and downs.  the ‘ups’ outweigh the ‘downs’ but the ‘downs’ are real.  and they hurt.

but this week i have experienced the ‘ups’ at an all time high.  i have been blessed with gifts, kind words, hugs, emails, texts of encouragement, smiles, and more!  

just being remembered is a precious thing.  it makes me feel loved.  it makes me feel special.  

this birthday was a good one.  a reminder that i have a place of belonging.  i have influence in peoples life. i have been blessed by god.

i hope that you feel this, as well, about yourself …. b/c we all have a place of belonging, a place of influence and a place of blessing.  

so, join me on this journey.  decide to live a life of love and friendship.  it’s a choice to lock arms with another person and stick “closer than a brother”.  ya up for it?  i think so!!  🙂

    Sorry you got sunburnt, thought it was just our intense African sun that fried pale skin.
