Giving Thanks #16

by | Nov 17, 2009 | thankfulness

Tonight I am thankful for my best friend Tina.

I wish everyone in the world could have a friend like Tina in their lives! Tina has been my friend since I was in fifth or sixth grade…which was a very long time ago…almost 29 years ago or so!

God has intertwined our lives in so many wonderful ways. We attend the same church together…and have for many years. We serve together in BSF. We work together at Mission of Hope. Our families are very close…our children call themselves cousins to each other. 🙂 We attended the same college together. We used to live together before we met our spouses and got married. We were each other’s maid of honor in our weddings. We have stayed such great friends all these years! I thank God for doing that for me!

She is the most wonderful friend. I can always count on her making time for me, no matter what. Something happened yesterday that was devastating for me, and Tina was the first one I called. She listened to me, sympathized with me, and made me feel somewhat better just with the words she said. She always does this for me. She’s never too busy for me! She makes me feel important…even after all these years!

We try each week to spend time with each other, either having coffee or a meal together. We both feel this is something each of us needs…time with each other. I cherish these times together, and I thank God He has allowed us to do this with our schedules each week! We talk about everything! Tina is someone who I can be myself with and she can be herself with me. It’s wonderful to be able to get into deep conversations with her about important matters of life, yet talk about the trivial things as well! She makes me laugh with her humor, and always makes me smile!

Tina is such a blessing in my life! I can’t imagine how empty my life would be without her and her friendship in it! I love her like a sister…and maybe even more so! I thank God for Tina tonight! I pray God blesses her and her family in amazing ways that only He can!
