Focus on Gratitude

by Stephanie


A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of
ones heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands
will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a
breath of kindness, blow and rest away.
- George Eliot

My life has been full lately….full of things that are hard work and not always fun.

But my heart has also been full….full of gratitude...
For the blessing of friendship….
For friends who live near and friends who live far…
For friends who fill my home on a regular basis…
For friends who pour themselves into my life and fill it until it overflows. 

My life is sweeter because of my friends!

What would we do without our friends? Such an important part of life to have a true friend who knows you and loves you anyway. Love your photo of your son and his friend. So sweet!

Wonderful post, Stephanie! And I love that picture of your son and his buddy. Guys! I think when you don't live near family, friends are even more treasured. Where would we be without them. Thank you, Stephanie!
