Today I am thankful for…friends.
I am truly blessed. I have friends in my life who love me no matter how bad I am at keeping in touch, who laugh at my bad jokes, read my blog (hi!) and forgive our differences knowing that our relationships are fostered not just by what we have in common, but what we don’t.
I have mommy friends, single friends, married friends, family friends, college friends, work friends, high school friends, neighbor friends. No matter the category, I truly do value their roles in my life. The places in my heart they have touched are forever changed.
As peanut gets older, I have watched with great excitement as he develops his first friendships. There are two other little boys, the sons of two of my mommy friends, that he plays with several days a week. Peanut talks about them a lot. He misses them when we’re away. And as they get to an age when they actually play together as opposed to next to each other, they are developing the silliest little games of chase and tackle. It is a joy to watch:
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’ to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you’ve got to do is call.
And I’ll be there.
You’ve got a friend.
