Gifts from God - My Friends

Ok, it's time to move on to those other very important people in my life...my friends. Oh, to think of where I would be without them simply makes me sad. I absolutely LOVE my friends! Each and every one of them hold a special place in my heart and in my life.

Let's meet some of them: (I sure wish I had pictures of all these ladies. But they'd probably kill me if I put them on here anyway :-) )

Thank you God, for the gift of: My "Girl" friends
Hmmm, now getting to this part of my "mini-series" poses a bit of a problem for me. Simply because I have SOOO many dear friends in my life. And I pray that for those who read this and don't see their names, that they will understand and not take it personal. Again, I have been so blessed with so many wonderful women in my life and it is always my goal not to ever intentially hurt any of them. So, here goes...ladies, I love you all dearly (and those that I may have left off in error). NOTE: These names are in no particular order.
Dee-Dee B., Gina T., Madeline S., Cynthia S., Stacey Q., Adrienne N., Karon M., Pamela M., Traci H., Tiffany D., Lisa B., Lisa M., Mandy M., Lisa F., Michelle C., Kisha A., Verlez W., Maria R., Dawn B., Terrie K., Donna H., Doris A., Elaine V., Andi R., Lisa N., Dimitra B., Marie C., Cheryl G., Trish C., Stephanie D., Diane D., Tyece J., Debbie H., Donna J., Shirlene M., Pam N., Pat M., Veronica M., Carla P., Shanna P., Debbie S., Kris T., Aline Q., Shakira T., and my new friend, Anne C., and many, many more I'm sure. For these gifts, I am thankful!!

If you want an accounting of your worth, count your friends.
Merry Browne

You really do have a lot of friends...but from the little I know of you, you are a sweet and kind person so it does not surprise me.

I think I have more acquaintances than friends though I wish it were the reverse.

I always classify a friend as someone who I could call at 3AM and ask them to pick me up from the airport and I know they would come...anyone else who I wouldn't dream of calling I classify as an acquaintance!!! LOL

Is that wrong of me? I don’t know. I think I have moved too many times to too far of places that I have lost many friends along the way…I am good at keeping in contact with people and will actually do detective work to track them down. But often times people just don’t want to make the effort to keep in touch so I just send cards every once in a while letting them know I am still thinking of them and leave it at that!!!

I also feel that at a certain age in life it seems harder to find and make friends...it seems as if little clicks have already been formed and it's hard to join.
