Thankful

Today I am feeling grateful for all the friends that God has blessed me with. Today I had the chance to talk to an old friend, Carrie Brady. She is from Memphis and I first met her when I was a summer intern at Christ United Methodist in the summer of 2001. It has been 7 years and we still keep in touch! She just had her 3rd child and she and MIles are only a week apart. It was really neat talking to her and catching up. Anyways, today I have just been overwhelmed and grateful for all my friends, all over this country. Every time you move you kind of re-access things and look at where you've been. The one thing that is constant is of course God, but other than that it's friends. I have been blessed with such amazing relationships where ever I am. Now that we are in Asheville (and we don't have any friends as of yet) I just think about all the different friends that I have in all the different places I've lived. It's pretty amazing. God is faithful. I must admit, I am a little lonely and I'm awaiting friends here in Asheville, but I know that they will come. God has always provided and I know they are out there somewhere. But to all you friends of mine, I love you and thank you for being apart of my life!
