I have so many wonderful friends to be thankful for. I appreciate each and every person in my life. I have actually written about a few whom I am deeply grateful for. This week, though, I would like to take a moment to thank my friend, [A] (she'll know who she is). [A] is actually one of the best people I know. By best people, I mean a truly good person. She is thoughtful and kind. She has a generous, loving heart. She is always ready with a kind word or helping hand. I'm not just talking about for me. She is like this to every person she encounters, friend or stranger. She is the type of person who will go out of her way to leave lemon loaf on your doorstep when she hears that the one you were baking was a complete flop! She makes time for you, no matter what's going on in her busy life. She not only listens, but she hears. She's your girl if you just need someone to laugh with, too! You need a drinking buddy? Well, she can drink me under the table!
I am so thankful that I have [A] in my life. She is a person that I know I can lean on. I know that she will always be there for me. She doesn't need to have the answers or fix problems, but she gives a shoulder to cry on. And cry on it, I have. There have been times these past couple of months that I don't know what I would have done without her. I am truly blessed to have [A] in my life.
