You’ve Got A Friend In Me

You’ve Got A Friend In Me

There is nothing like a great friend to turn to, for whatever reason.  God has blessed me with a select few.  True friends are few and far between.  Loyalty, trustworthiness, a shoulder to cry on, or to have a good laugh, are just a few qualities that my friends and I share.

Angie is my long distant best friend.  Though she is on the other side of the nation, I know that I can call, text, e-mail, or message her for any reason at any time.  Whether I need to vent, tell her good news, need prayer for something, I know she is there. Angie is is always there for me, though she can’t be ‘here’, our hearts are with each other.

Lynn has been my best friend since childhood.  We don’t have to talk to each other everyday to know that our friendship is true.  We always pick up where we left off.  I am the Batman to her Robin. She is one of the strongest ladies that I have ever met.  She has gone through heart wrenching trials, (her 2 year old passed away suddenly, 6 years ago), and she still has her faith in God and knows that He is the One who carries her life in His hands.

My sister, Emily, is my constant.  We have to agree to disagree agreeably.  We spend the most time together.  I do feel the need to “mother” her at times instead of just standing back and being the “big sister”.  We know each other in and out.  Our likes and dislikes.  We can correct each other and not think anything about it.  I wouldn’t trade her for anything. She’s a keeper.

I am also blessed to have my mom.  I can vent to her and tell her anything that I need to and she will keep it with her.  She will pray about anything that I need prayer for or just listen if I need to talk.

My best friend of all, is my husband, David.  He is always there for me, no matter what.  He spoils me like crazy.  I am so undeserving. God truly blessed me when He gave David to me.

I pray that I can be as good of a friend to them as they are to me.  I also hope to gain close relationships with others and for God to give me the wisdom, loyalty, and words to speak to help others.
