30 Days of Thanks: Days 9 & 10
I am bundling yesterday and today's posts as I was out of town yesterday, then was pretty out of it from the Dramamine I took for motion sickness. Originally I was going to post both of these for day 9 but I figured might as well make it count for both days. =D
9. I am thankful for my friend Jessica.
I've known Jessica since I was in third grade. There have been times where for whatever reason we weren't that close, mostly because we lived farther from each other than we would like. I am blessed to have the kind of friend in her that is a constant in your life regardless of how often you actually talk or see each other. Neither of us are really talkers but I know she is there for me if I need her and I hope she knows I am there for her. She is among the few people from elementary/middle/high school I consider to still be my friend rather than just a Facebook acquaintance. I will always cherish the memories I have of sleepovers and Harry Potter theorizing and playing goofy golf with our season passes as kids. I can only hope that one day my child will find a friend to make those kind of memories with. I am thankful that I am able to have a lifelong friend like this.
10. I am thankful for my friend John.
Several years ago Jessica started dating a guy named John. He was different from her past boyfriends from the beginning. He really made the effort to connect with us on a personal level rather than just be her SO. I might not have known him as long, but I consider him to be just as much my friend as her. Since he runs the Minecraft server I play on sometimes I actually talk to him more than her lol. I obviously don't know all the inner workings of their relationship but he seems to be a great partner and father to their son. He even engages with my little sister and treats her like a niece or something rather than just some annoying kid. He has a lot in common with my DH so they have become friends as well. I am thankful that we can all hang out and have fun as a group.
