I am so blessed and thankful for my close friends who know me so well and love me anyway. You know who you are!
Most of them live near me and I consider them as my local “family.” I also have a friend who lives all the way across the country in Maine and we have yet to meet in person, yet our online friendship is so sweet. Then there is that special lady who once lived near me, moved halfway across the country, and then moved back several years later. Although we now live about 130 miles apart, we love it that when we get together, we pick up our conversation just as if we lived next door to each other.
What would we do without the blessing of our close friends?
