Blessed with Friendships

This Christmas, I was reminded of how blessed I am. My heavenly Father has continued to keep my family safe from harm. He has blessed us beyond reason this year. This year I have formed several deep friendships. I remember several years ago when having a good friend was hard to come by and now I have many wonderful friends and four who mean the world to me. I cannot imagine my life without them and am so thankful that I will not have to face that anytime soon. I love you ladies so much. Thank you for being my friends. And thank you for blessing my children's lives with the lives of your children (even the boys).

As I sit today and actually comprehend everything that C has gone through over the past month, I am so thankful that she is in the hospital, under constant care as she recovers from this scary situation. I told her today, I know she doesn't want to be in the hospital, but as long as she's there and getting well taken care of, I would come and see her as often as she needs. I just want her to get well, and so do many other people. Literally hundreds of people all across the world are praying for her recovery. They love her because I love her!

I do not know what I would do if I did not have J or D to call at 8 am (who else is up that early)? We are going to get through this weight loss challenge and then we will celebrate. . . but we will continue to celebrate as we reach each milestone as well as every single pound that C gains back once she's on the road of recovery.

And although I am still getting to know M, I feel so blessed to be a part of her life. I love you more each day as I learn more and more about you!
