I have held to a certain belief about close/best friends for a very long time. I am talking about your “besties”…the friends who are the closest “heart friends” in your life. I truly believe that these people should not only be your closest friends, but, people that make you a better person, spurn you on to greatness, and, above all else, are friends that you admire and desire to be like.
Why have a best friend that you don’t truly admire? Jesus spent most of His time with his twelve disciples. They encouraged and loved one another. They spent much life-on-life time together. I believe that they deeply influenced one another.
If you are blessed to have close and best friends around you….you are blessed.
My dear friend Brandi is a great example of a friend who I admire and want to be more like. She dropped off this “happy” on my porch last week. A wonderful color cup system for me to use with my four older children….each child has their own color and, this way, meal times and snack times are more organized.
Pink- Brooke; Blue- Beck; Red- Bo; Green- Boss. *The little orange sack is a ‘happy’ for me. Sweet friend!!!
She even took the time to write me an uplifting note. My “Love Language” is encouraging words and, this sweet note really encouraged my day! Ahhhh…the power of the hand written word…awesome impact!
She placed a cute little Halloween candy in each cup, for a little surprise. My kids loved it!
The sweet note of encouragement. Made my week!
She gave me this little ‘happy’. Packets of hot cocoa and, a yummy scented fall candle.
I love the way she placed everything in this basket. So cute!
This is the cocoa and candle for me….
