My Cup Runeth Over

This week, my spirits were lifted by a Christmas card. My friend Tobi always writes the sweetest notes in her cards. This time was special. This is what she wrote:
Thank you so much for being such a good friend to me. I’m really glad we’ve gotten to be so close this past year. Also, thank you for being a spiritual inspiration. Watching your journey has nudged me in the right direction to be able to renew my relationship with God. You are very near and dear to not just my heart, but also to my soul. So, thank you.

What a wonderful Christmas present Tobi’s friendship is! She is an inspiration to me in so many ways. She is a loving mother. She is a wonderful wife. She is strong. She is honest. She is beautiful inside and out. She lets me cry. She makes me laugh. She is always there……..even when I call her late at night because I am so sick I can’t hold my head up.

I strive to be the friend to her that she is to me. I am so blessed to have her friendship.

I love you Tobi and I am so glad you are on this journey with me!

Okay, I will not only lurk, but leave a comment for fear that i shall make liar of myself if I don't. I love you. Period. End. It warms me to see all the wonderful things that you write, but it is being surrounded by good friends that allow me to be myself. -Tobi
