Ever had one of those Friends....


This post is dedicated to...One of those Friends who sometimes knows you better than you know yourself. My friend Gillian is one of those. She always knows what I need before I even say it. She must have one of those sixth senses. I am so indebted to her, it will take all eternity to repay her for all her kindnesses to me and my family. I am so lucky to have her in my life, talk about a blessing. She runs me places, she shops for me, she helps my kids with homework, she feeds me, she buys me candy, and she even texts me when she is on a romantic weekend with her Husband. (Sorry, Bill) I am very blessed to have her as Visiting Teacher, but this woman goes beyond all realms. You know, sometimes when you pray for something the Lord really blesses you beyond measure, and this is a friend that I have needed for a very long time. I want her to know how much I love her and it is not possible with words tell her how much I appreciate what she does for me. My entire Family is blessed for service. So now the world knows how incredible you are, and I am happy to tell them.You emulate the pure love of Christ, and I am sooo lucky to be one of your Friends. I know many people who feel the same way about you, and they are very lucky too. I am not alone in this, you treat everyone special. That is just who you are. We are all so blessed to be your friends. Thank you for ALL you do. Never forget you are loved and appreciated!!!

I had a friend that told me as a challenge that I should accept compliments without excuse. This is a very hard thing to do. Dawn I am not all that, but thanks for thinking so. It's easy to be a good friend and I love to please others, it brings me joy. Friends are a special part in my life and provide me with so much support and guidance, so it's best to keep them happy!!
Thank you.
Ps. sorry i don't have an account so I am anonymous, but it's realy me, Gillian!

I have to comment... Dawn, I agree that Gillian is all those things, she has helped me in my life in so many ways. I live in Cali now but Gillian still takes the time to call and text and help me. How do you repay a friend like that? I don't know but I certainly would like to do it if I can. Gillian, you should accept all these compliments... the friend who told you that was wise indeed! :)
love,
Kristen
