Friends…More Like Family

IMG_3704Life can be really funny at times. Sometimes you get those curve balls thrown at you and you just expect the worst to happen.  You get ready to put on your brave face and your big girl panties because you can get through this just like you have gotten through everything else. All the sudden, that curve ball you were thrown actually turns into a really great thing.  All that stress and the questioning of things that you thought you needed to do, didn’t really need to happen at all. At times like this, I just like to sit and chuckle. Yes, you read that right, I sit and chuckle to myself.  God has to have an amazing sense of humor.

IMG_1896While I was working myself through this curveball, I took some time to sit and reflect.  You see, I have been told that at times I can have tunnel vision.  I did not believe this at first but then I took some more time to think about it.  I can get so focused on certain people or projects in my life that I forget to stop and smell the roses.  The last four years have been some great ones at A&M, but this year, 2018 has been the best so far.

If you know me at all, then you know that I have always been “one of the guys”.  I would rather go out in my baseball cap and watch some kind of sports over a few beers than shopping any day.  For some reason it has not always been easy for me to have girlfriends.  This may be because it just takes me a while to let people in.  Well, tonight I took a step back and widened my tunnel vision and some unexpected things came to light.  I have made some amazing friends these last few years, but especially this last year.  I would not even call them friends, I would call them family.  They have not only taken me in as family but the kiddo in as well.  Now that my friends brings me to tears.

I am so thankful for all the wonderful people that God has put in my life.  Whether it be brand new people that I am still getting to know or people that have been there from the beginning.  You know who you are and I hope you know how much each one of you means to me and I thank you.  Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the roses and look at all the tremendous people you have in your life.  You might be amazed at what you see.

As always spread some love, we can all use a little more love.
