I realize I haven’t done my 5 things for a little bit. This is mostly due to being busy, sick, or just out of the habit.

Since it was Thanksgiving I thought I’d do my list of 5 things, but with the twist that it’s about friends

1. I’m so grateful to have a friend who invited me to the temple with her. I haven’t been in far to long and I’m happy she thought to ask me to come with her on her monthly excursion.

2. I’m grateful to have a friend who loves my girls and watched them for part of our lunch so I could go buy presents for them. I cherished hearing that she would love to watch them because she loves my girls and spending time with them. (She also loves children in general, but I like to think she likes mine a little moreĀ  than the others, at least until she has her own.)

3. I’m grateful for a sister/ friend who let me and the girls just hang out with her for hours since I needed to be somewhere other than my home so Jon could study in peace and quiet. She did this yesterday and today.

4. I’m grateful for friends who support me in homeschooling and help me out when I’m struggling.

5. I’m thankful for new friends that I meet and help me on this journey called life.

I find myself wondering what a future friend is doing right now and who I might become closer to in the future and how we will help one another in our lives.

I realize I have a lot to be grateful for and am so happy to have so many wonderful people who are a part of my life.

I just hope I can be as thoughtful and kind as those who I encounter and those who show me love through the small actions they make towards me or my family.

    Of course I love them more than the others.
