day 3 - jan 3, 2011
i am blessed with some of the best of friends a girl could ask for. seriously, i have really, really wonderful friends. i am thankful for these jewels who have been there for me through the joyous times and days of heartache. so many of you have literally given me the shirt off your back or a shoulder to cry on and i want you to know these acts of kindness have not gone unnoticed.
i am so thankful we have celebrated the many precious moments of life, including marriage and the birth of our children. i am sad we have had to hold one another up through the trials of divorce and the heartbreak of death.
thank you for being the kind of friend that would do anything for me. my life is so much richer because you're in it. you all have exceeded my expectations and i am forever grateful to call you my friend. may God bring you many blessings in 2011!
