So I’m sitting in my cousin’s basement right now, the TV is on and the pre game talk thingy is on. My oldest cousin and brother had to run to the store for something and my cousin and my oldest cousin’s fiance are taking showers (ok, they just got out), so I thought it would be a good time to take a break and tell y’all what I am thankful for this year.
God has blessed me so much with so many things. One thing that I want to really give thanks for is the amazing friends. He has given me some amazing “brothers” that I am so thankful for. I have had guy friends before, but I have made some very special friends with guys over the last year or so.
God has also blessed me with two wonderful “girlfriends” (chicas) Lauren and Hope. They are both amazing girls that have blessed me so much with their friendship and accountability. I have known Hope for years and she goes to my church, and it has been so special to see all these signs of grace in her life as she has grown up. She was in my study for Do Hard Things and I think out of all the girls, she changed the most from it. Starting this fall we have become accountability partners and have enjoyed (trying) to get together about once a month to have some coffee or tea and talk together.
Lauren is an unusual situation. I have never met her before in person, but she has been such a blessing to me. I “met” her this summer through some mutual online friends and it’s been an amazing friendship. So when I need a person to pray for me or to share my heart with, she is almost always the first. I cherish our many long talks on phone and IM. We have been keeping each other accountable lately too.
So my everyone is out of the shower and my cousin and brother are back so I better get going and join in the festivities that haven’t started yet. :D Thanks for all the encouragement that you guys have given me since I have started blogging, it mean a lot to me. God bless!
