Continuing on Thankfulness Week, today I am thankful for my friends. They keep me sane(ish) and I don't know where I would be without them.
I accosted Teresa on the way home from the bus stop 16 years ago and I have held on tight to that girl ever since. We have been best friends since that day, and have never gotten into a fight in all that time. I honestly don't remember ever even disagreeing with her, but it has been said that we share a brain, so I guess that only makes sense. When people talk about friends through thick and thin, that is Teresa for me. You are my rock and my life would not be the same without you. I love you and you are stuck with me for many more years to come!
I also am thankful for Holly, Tracie, Amy, Jessica, Kelina, Tarah, Stephana, Erin, Rebecca, Brenda, Jenn, DeAnna, Michelle, and the rest of my friends. They love me for who I am and put up with my craziness. I love you guys, you each bring something different into my life and I appreciate you so much!
Who can write about friends without including my crazy bloggy friends? To Christy, Shannon, Christa, Wendy, Tracy, Kadi, Becky, Jen, Tricia, Melissa, and everyone else I have come to know and love through your writings and stories, thank you for bringing some light into my long days. I appreciate your presence and friendship, and though we have never met, I feel like I know some of you really well and you have become an important part of my life. I never understood the idea of online friends until I met all of you, but you are fabulous people and I am blessed to have you in my life.
I am so blessed to have the people surrounding me that I do. I have heard the saying that you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their friends, and I think I have a great group. I am thankful for each and every one of you!
