thankful

I am most Thankful for very good friends. My friends bless me beyond what words can express. I have 4 most excellent friends. Their names are Bert, Brent, Pam and Doug. I may soon be adding a new friend to that list by the name of Sue.

Bert is always there when I need a friend to talk to and to Love. She is family and it is a honor and a privilege to call her friend.

I have known Brent since high school and He is another friend I can talk to, to a point.

Pam and Doug are a married couple I have known since I was 16 (almost 30 years ago now)  I am very thankful for them.

Just thinking about these people that have blessed me so much helped to pull me out of a depression spell that I got into when I started to think about what I didn't have instead of what I did have. I am a very happy man now. I know I can call any of these friends and they will bless me even if it just saying hello to them. I pray that everyone learns how to count their blessings instead of their liabilities.

Money and material possessions are nice, but it is the kindness and Love you can only get from a friend and that you can give to a friend that satisfies the soul and heart and gives you a glimpse of what it will be like in heaven when we will always be in God's presence, being around genuine true love in its most purest form…man gets me homesick but until then, I plan on being the best friend I possibly can be to these my true and good friends.

I hope I always remember that people who love you are the way God blesses you and vice-versa.

Thought for today… Love can't be bought, it can only be given.

If you aren't on the receiving end of any, check to see if you aren't giving any away with no strings attached, or stipulations just freely give.

May God also bless you today.
