my cup runneth over….

This is just one of those weeks I feel like I have been kissed from heaven. Have you ever had a time like that? This kiss was given in the form of friendships that I have here on earth.
I got the opportunity to have dinner with two very favorite people in my life. We don’t see each other that often but we talked like there was no tomorrow, for hours. The second we sat down it was a deep meaningful conversation, sometimes debate, almost a tear drop here and there, and then also laughing out loud moments. I went away feeling like my cup was full!
Then the very next morning, I sent my babes off to VBS while girlfriend and I sat at Starbucks and caught up after not getting the chance or making the time to be together. When seeing each other a few days before our little date, in passing, as the norm, she said, “a tree doesn’t grow without water.” That was it for me….it was time we got together,we did, and it was so much fun. We plan on making this the norm from now on, a must! We are going to be well watered.
So, then I get home to the UPS driver coming to my door and throwing a book at my porch. Ugh, I didn’t order a book! Another precious friend who I mentioned we should read this book together so we could discuss it, two days later, BOOM, there it is in hand. This friend is one of those who is an amazing gift giver. When she gives a gift it is unique and like nothing you would normally see. Always so thoughtful, so generous.
Then today I went into bloggy world and clicked on friend’s blog, “It’s how she rolls” (her button is on my sidebar, check it out!) I was so honored to be recognized on HER blog. Yah know, this girl is so talented. She also is a friend that I cherish so deeply.
So, we haven’t even hit the end of the week and I am absolutely blessed beyond measure. I have said it before and I will say it again, our Lord has given me friendships that truly have been given by Him. I thank Him for that every day. Again….I am one blessed girl!

Big Fat Mama - Friendships are so wonderful! I have a friend that I’ve had since middle school and we can go years without seeing each other, and then when we do finally get to see each other again it’s like we pick up right where we left off.

Praise God for your week of wonderful friend connections that He’s placed in your life!!
