Our family is doing “30 Days of Thanks“. It’s interesting that today’s activity is invite someone you’re thankful for over to your home. The reason it’s interesting? Chip has invited his friend Glenn to today’s University of Kentucky football game [go.big.blue] and I’ve baked Glenn a pumpkin cheesecake for his birthday. These arrangements were made in honor of Glenn’s birthday, without consulting with the 30 Day guide. It just worked out this way.
I am thankful for Glenn. He’s been a faithful friend to Chip for a long, long time. And, he’s my friend too.
I was reminded this week that I have a couple ladies in my life that are call in the middle of the night friends. What I mean by that is, though I don’t see them super regularly, though our schedules don’t allow weekly lunch dates, though we don’t have frequent casual phone convos. . . . . I know I could call either one of them at 2 a.m. and they’d pray with/for me. They’re wise, they’re experienced ministry wives and moms, and they’ll give it to me straight.
So, here’s to friends. Whether they’re the ones on Facebook I’ve known since I was in kindergarten or the people I work with or my best friend Chip who is also my husband. . .
And here’s to Pumpkin Cheesecake!
