Out with the Old & In with the New

I did it.  No more just "talking" about it, I finally DID it!  I deactivated my facebook account.  Why?  My motivation was simply that I spend soooo much free time on there that it replaces things I should be doing.  So why start a blog and delete facebook?  Honestly, this is therapeutic to me.  I've always enjoyed writing and I don't have to see people's blogs (or statuses) that I don't want to see.  I don't have to worry about the drama.  Blogs seems to provide an abundance of resources, which is beneficial to me.  So, it's just me and you now...  :)

Today, I am thankful for friendship.  And, I am thankful that God didn't make us all alike... how boring would that be anyway?! 

Of course, I've had some friends come and go, but God has always crossed my path with the "right" friend at the "right" time.  Isn't that amazing?  And, I'm sure you can relate to this:  I have friends for different circumstances.  For instance, I know when I'm down, who I should call:  my friend who uplifts and encourages me.  When I feel motivated, I call the friend who typically needs uplifted.  When I need to share my Mom-of-the-Year moments and I need laughter, I know who to call.  But, when I need to shed some tears, I call the friend who will cry along with me.

I pray that I will learn from each of my close friends to become a faithful friend myself.  One close friend of mine often says, "You'll have many aquaintances, but few true friends."  I am eternally thankful for my true friends and I pray that I am a "true friend" to someone.  So, hug a friend today.  :)
