I was thinking the other day about that moment when you know you're meant to be friends with someone.
It's a little bit different with every person...a little different with every friend. I feel like with some friends it's a collection of many little moments and with others you kind of just know right from the start. But often there comes a moment when you stop and think: "We were meant to be friends."
This happened the other day while I was at a restaurant with my friend Becca and the place where we were eating at was playing a selection of terrible 90's music. But, all of a sudden we both found ourselves singing along. And we both knew all of the words....to EVERY song. TLC, Savage Garden, Alanis Morrisette...we knew them all. And it was that moment when I knew we were meant to be friends.
Obviously our love for lame 90's music is not the only reason we are friends, but it will definitely prove useful if we ever should find ourselves on a road trip together, although our husbands have already forbidden any such road trip singing unless we agree to go alone or we get a vehicle where the front and the back can be separated by a sound barrier :).
On a more serious note though....
I am so thankful for good friends.
God has blessed me with such wonderful friends. Especially during this challenging new season of life with a baby, I have gained a new appreciation for the friendships in my life. I have so many wonderful friends: friends who I can be silly with, friends who I can be real with, friends who I can cry with, friends who I can share my joys with. Those of you who have walked alongside me and taken part in life with me, you know who you are and I just want you to know that I am so grateful for you.
Sorry for all the sentimentality,
but sometimes you've just gotta gush.
