a friendly shout out
I read an idea for a blog topic recently entitled "the friends I can't wait to meet" and started thinking about what that might mean to me...or anyone. I tried to come up with the perfect friend in my mind. Perhaps they would be rich and/or famous. Or maybe they would be a mentor of sorts and teach me everything I need to know about what I am trying to do with my life right now. They could be the most encouraging person in the world or the funniest. Or maybe it would just be someone who is in the exact same place in life as me and would truly understand everything. As I tried to dream up these amazing people, my mind kept drifting to those I do know and I was reminded of what incredible friends I have. Fifteen years ago, if I would have found myself thinking the same thoughts, I would have never been able to dream up the friends I had not yet met. I suppose it is realistic that in another fifteen years, I will be looking back and seeing additional friends I did not know now, but today I was reminded of how blessed I am. None of my friends are very famous (no offense friends) and none of us are in exactly the same place in life, but they are perfect and I couldn't ask for more. So, as titled, this is just a shout out to all of my amazing friends. You are "the friends I couldn't wait to meet"! I am so thankful to have you, I love you and be reminded today of how special you are!
