Hello! I am hoping this can be a place to come and be encouraged and meet new friends. This is very new to me. I started this blog at the urging of a dear friend. I am so grateful for the ones God allows to touch our life lightly and some deeply. There are people who are there for a season and ones who stay longer. For the past several years I have had the privilege of knowing what it is like to have more than one friend at a time. I tend to be a loner and have always invested in one friend at a time. Then I got older and reluctantly pushed out of my comfort zone to be surprisingly blessed with a variety of people who enrich my life. I love to bake, but get tired of baking the same chocolate chip cookies week after week. Sometimes, just adding 1 new ingredient makes it less mundane. This is how I feel about really knowing a handful of gals I call friend. They replace the staleness of life with freshness. I do not use the word friend carelessly. It takes time to build a friendship. Sometimes you get hurt, but it's worth it for the times you don't and find a gem. Thank a friend today in your life who is worthy to be called friend.
