~Just Be~

What a blessing it is when God gives you a FRIEND.

I ran into my friend yesterday...we haven't seen each other for awhile!

We don't get together often (busy mommies we are), but knowing she cares is enough for me.

She was the first person here that let me JUST BE.

Nothing to prove.

Nothing to earn.

She loved me because God loved me.

That's special, guys.

They don't come by very often.

God gives them when you really need them~a reminder that He loves us.

For my friend....

I picked up this fun, crazy DP months ago.

It spoke to me happy thoughts...but I didn't know what to use it for until this challenge.

WOO HOO number 150!!!!

Congrats ColourQ!

May God send you someone that loves you just because "you are"~especially when you really need it.
