It’s not 2018 yet but one of my goals is to show deep appreciation for my friends. I’ve learned this year how rare true friends are. Like I’ve known that-but this year my eyes were opened to the need for genuine people! I’m a people person for sure but I have reached a point where superficial friendships serve no purpose. True connection, honesty, and mutual respect are of the upmost importance to me. And I’m keeping up with that mindset I want to show appreciation for those who have enriched my life in such a major way.

Enter Misty. Mama Misty, as I call her. Not only is she an active participant at our church, but she’s an active participant in my life! She calls, texts, and shows a genuine concern for what is going on with my family. She allows me to vent, she prays for and with me, and is always a phone call away! Her heart longs to serve others and she does just that FAITHFULLY!

This year has been fantastic but that’s not to say there haven’t been ups and downs. She has showed compassion and grace and helped me to reciprocate that to others.

She makes me laugh- makes me smile- and reminds me there is still good in the world!

Thank you, Mama Misty for being YOU! You are so loved!

Thanks for “sharpening” me, my friend!

Thanks for reading!
