Thankful Thursday

better late than never . . .

Friendship. How wonderful! I am so thankful for my friends. Last weekend I got away for "the weekend" {Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon} with 6 girlfriends. We do it once a year. I think this was our 5th year. It is wonderful!

I have been blessed with some amazing friends: ones who I can call and just vent, ones who call me for a last-minute favor, ones who know my kiddos well and are willing to call them on being naughty when it's necessary, ones I can laugh with, ones I can cry with, ones I can share frustrations and joys with, ones who love me for me, ones who I can be honest and transparent with and trust they will not think I'm a terrible person, friends who are kind and good and funny and a blast to be around . . . plus, my friends are super cute and look great in pictures! {at least I think so!}

I also have an amazing husband, who is truly the best friend I could ever ask for. But, he's not a girl {although we do joke that he's "part girl"}. There's just no substitute for girlfriends. I can't imagine life without them.

One of my favorite friends is Sara Groves {ok, she's not really my friend. I HAVE met her . . . twice, but I'm sure she doesn't remember. However, I do believe that we could be buds if given the chance.} Sara has a new album with a wonderful song about friendship. Take a listen here! So, to my friends: life with you is half as hard and twice as good! I love you!

What are you thankful for today? What is your favorite thing about friendship? Who is your best friend? What's your favorite song these days?

I made a few fun little things yesterday and would love to give you one. Leave a comment answering one of the questions above {or all of them in separate comments for more chances} and I'll randomly pick someone to get a little prize . . . plus, it's a prize in itself to stop for a second and think about the things for which you are thankful and how great it is to have friends! Have a great day!


  1. Thankful for today: A babysitter tonight!
    Favorite thing about friendship: The connectedness I feel to someone else who is on their life journey next to me (did that make sense?)
    Best friend: The hottie that fathered my children and lives with me and happens to be my husband.
    Favorite song these days: So sad to admit it...almost everything on the new Miley Cyrus CD. I even listen without my kids. Oh my!

    Can't wait for our big dinner tomorrow, not sure about my BFF though, he's just excited to go out with you guys.

  2. I'm thankful for my sister-in-law!
    Favorite thing about friendship - bonding - especially now having kids at the same time.
    Best friend - your BROTHER!
    Favorite song - anything Shane & Shane, but I will admit that I broke out my Christmas music a couple of weeks ago. Boy, I love Christmas music.


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
