The sweet blessing of friendship

I absolutely love when we get to spend time with good friends. Today my best friend Lea, Jenni Anne's godmother, came by with her boyfriend. She was in town and stopped by to visit her goddaughter, and best friend of course.

Lea and I have been best friend's since we were two years old. I am always so excited when she is in town, because we don't get to see each other as much as we would like to. She brought over mine and Jenni Anne's Christmas present and we were finally able to exchange our gifts. I am in love with the stress relief lotion and hand soap. She nailed it... stress relief is just what I need. I am even more in love with what she gave Jenni Anne... Two Arthur books. These books were very special to Lea and I when we were growing up. We used to read Arthur together when we were in school, watch the T.V. shows, play the board games, and collect the dolls. Marc Brown didn't realize what a special character he created when he made Arthur. To this day, I still love Arthur. I am not sure if it is that I still love the books themselves so much, or if it is the memories that surround them.

The Lord doesn't put people in your life on accident. He places them to come in at exactly the right part and in mine and Lea's case, well I guess He knew that we needed each other the entire time. I am so blessed to have her as a best friend.

Jenni Anne has no clue how special these books are. I hope that one day she will be able to share them with a true best friend.

Jenni Anne is the luckiest little girl to have her as her Godmother. 


  1. I wrote a post on friendship earlier this week, too! Friends are such wonderful blessings from God :)

  2. Yes they are! He sends them at exactly the right time they are needed :)
