I was thinking a lot about one of my friends today. They are especially on my mind today because Brigid and her family are traveling to New Zealand (with a 4 day stop in Fiji!!). They will be living there for about eight months. Even though we don't get to see as much of each other as we each would like, I truly enjoy the time we do spend together. So I was feeling a little meloncholy about her absence in my little world for the next few months.
I am not a person with a whole gaggle of friends, but the ones I have I cherish. All my friends are truly blessings in my life. They help me remember where I've been in my life and help me get to where I need to go. It is wonderful to have friends for the different compartments of my life. And when one fits into more than one place, that's just icing on the cake!! They may come and go and come back again as life allows, but God always makes sure the right person is around when I need her.
If I am lucky to count you as a friend, thank you for alway being there when I need you. I pray that you feel you can count on me too.
