What are we without our friends?

Seriously, this has been a crummy day from the time my feet hit the floor. Somedays are just like that, some are not. Some days I think, who cares if I have only 2 sick days left for the whole year, I really want to crawl in bed, pull the covers up, and pretend like I don't exist. Who cares if there is a stack of paperwork on my desk so insurmountable that I don't even know if I have a desk anymore? Who cares that my dishes are stacked in both sides of the sink b/c I just didn't feel like dealing with it last night? Who cares? Not me. I don't care about anything b/c life isn't fair, sometimes it sucks so bad I just stop caring.

Then, a friend emails you a link to a book, because she thought you should read it. So you read it, and you remember, there is always some One who cares. He cares for me, even when I don't have enough faith to care for myself. He loves me, even when I don't love myself. He believes in the plan He has for me, even when I don't care what that plan is. And He cares enough to bring people into my life that can make my crummy day, the one I couldn't deal with, okay enough that I can get through it long enough to wake up tomorrow morning and make it a better day. Because He cares that much.

So, thank you Bree for thinking about me.

I know you’re not talking about me, but I wanted to let you know that I have been thinking about & praying for you a lot lately. I really miss our time together in M’ville & wish we could still hang out. I know I haven’t been a good friend since we left M’ville, but I wanted you to know that I do think of you often. If you ever need anything, I’m here for you.

So glad she e-mailed you that book...I plan on downloading it and reading it when I have time!
We both shoulda stayed home...would have served everyone right for running us so ragged!

I want you to know that you are one of those friends that I thank God for everyday. The world couldn't go round without great friends. I am sure that you only had a crummy day because you didn't see me at 4:45 that morning!
