november 19 – day nineteen of thankful thoughts…

Standard

The short list.

Today I am thankful for those friends who are on what I refer to as “the short list.”  They know who they are.  We have raised our children together, gone to school together, weathered storms together, and prayed for each other.  A couple of them, I see regularly.  We have lunch together and sit in church together.  A couple of them, I see once or twice a year, maybe.  I trust them.  I value their opinions.  They keep me grounded when I want to freak out.  They all hold special pieces of my heart.  I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them.

 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work;
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
