Shame on me!

Ok, while writing my previous post I completely forgot to tell what I was thankful for today. Shame on me!

Today, I am thankful for laughter.  I am thankful for the Lord's healing touch, and how he has provided laughter as a way to ease pain for us.  Today was beautiful, despite the ups and downs I felt. David and I laid in bed tonight, and we started talking about random things, and we just started laughing. And let me tell you, it wasn't the small giggle laugh either. It was the full on, belly-hurting, can't-breathe, head-pounding kind of laugh.  It was the kind of laugh where you're pretty sure you're going to die if you don't stop to get air.  It was pure bliss and raw beauty together.  Although we're both trying to wrap our heads around this twist of events, and even though we're not sure how Monday will go or what will be said, today was a bit of medicine for our hearts and spirits.

I'm also thankful for my bestie today.  I have so many beautiful friends who will always be there for me and they are all blessings. Today, however, my bestie just sat with me for hours. She sat there, playing with our golden retriever, just listening to me talk or sitting in silence, or watching me fill out paperwork.  She didn't care that we weren't doing anything at all, but she was there for support.  She ended up going back to school this year, and that has allowed her time to hang out with me every week. In my opinion, God really worked his magic here, because I need her right now and she never fails.  I would be blessed even if today was the only day she's spent with me like that, but it's not. Her patience, understanding, sympathy, and wisdom never cease to amaze me.  She is a true blessing in my life.
