I know today is list day... but you'll have to get over that, go see Sara's it's really good today, gotta figure out what her verse will be tomorrow.

Speaking of Sara, I had breakfast with her. I love her. The first time we had lunch together, it was at the same place, Opa Opa! or aka 'Opa'. I cried over coneys and she ate greek salad. Yeah, she is a better eater than me. Today, she ate oatmeal, i ate an omelet & potatoes. Sara hasn't been my friend all that long, about a year I guess. I've come to love her and depend on her wisdom (don't choke on that one), on her sense of humor, and her love. Can't imagine my life without her.

Then it was off to get my hair highlighted. All is right with the world if your hair looks good. And mine does! But anyway, I went to see my oldest friend to do my hair (she works at Ventura's in Dearborn - $62 for a highlight and haircut). Erica is her name, I've known Erica since I was in kindergarten at McDonald Elementry school. I look at Erica and I still think she is my coolest friend. That sounds completely dorky but it's me, so get over it already. I can't even tell you how I admire her. Erica has a talent, she is great at helping people feel good about themselves, she's incredibly talented when it comes to hair, but Erica has this way about her that you feel completely comfortable with her.

Dani's (it's a guy) birthday was March 14th (Wednesday) and all day I caught myself smiling. Dani is my friend in prision. This is his last birthday he will spend in prison, because he is up for an appeal hearing and I am praying like mad that he gets out (he has a life sentence, you can email me if you want the story). I have known Dani since I was 11. He's true and honest, and he loves me. He tells me when I need to be checked and he loves me when that's what I need to.

I was driving thinking about the friends that have come into my life (and sometimes out of my life) and how thankful I am for each on of them. I have friends that I have never met (they are my blog friends), I have friends that were just once just family but have become friends, I have friends that I have known for a long time, friends for a short time. Friends who let me just be me, and friends who push me to do things that I am just not comfortable with doing.

I'm thankful for all of them.

1 Samuel 18:1 By the time David had finished reporting to Saul, Jonathan was deeply impressed with David—an immediate bond was forged between them. He became totally committed to David. From that point on he would be David's number-one advocate and friend.

doesn't it sometimes seem like your friends were your friends forever; it just took a while to meet them? that's what i think anyway. call me squiggy.
