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!! 🙂
