Friends and I were trying to decide if we were going to do presents for each other this year. One dear friend helped us remember how precious friends are and we decided to celebrate the preciousness of our friendship and not the materialism that comes with Christmas. In our bible study were are blessed to be very very good friends and we are always there for one another. We love each others kids as our own and pray for them like we pray for our own kids. So many people that have witnessed our friendship have commented about how blessed we are to have the type of friendship we have. We know not everyone is as blessed as we are. Some people are very lonely in our crowded busy lives. So many women are busy working, being Moms, wives, cleaning their homes and being everything to everyone that they really don't have time for good friends. As women we really need those friendships. They help us recharge for our families, and they help keep us in check and remind us we're not alone in the many trials we go thru. It's always a good day to have a chat with a friend.
Here's a layout I made to put in a frame of 2 of my dear friends and myself. Sorry for the bad picture. I didn't have time to edit it and I had to take a picture inside because it got dark on me before I realized how late it was.
Day 9 gift:
Todays gift is frames from Tim Holtz. There are 6 metal plates. They add a great touch to mini albums.
