For Friday, June 8th, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Best Friend Day which is a time to enjoy and appreciate your best friend. It’s a day to honor and cherish the relationship.
If you are really lucky, you have number of best friends. Best friends are very special people. You spend countless hours with them and share secrets, hopes and dreams with your best friend.
Friends come and go for a variety of reasons, even BFF’s some times are not forever. It’s the result of many things, including moving, changing schools or jobs and more.
It is hoped that you are lucky enjoy to have a number of best friends over the years.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Over the years I have been blessed with quite a number of good friends but some of those friendships have lasted much longer than others and I am very thankful for them. I know my life wouldn’t be the same without them.
Some of my family are best friends and some of my friends are like family too. They are always there for me when I need them and hopefully I’m there for them too.
The picture above is of my daughter. Years ago she told one of her teachers that her mom was her best friend and I think she is one of mine too. We do a lot together and enjoy many of the same things. My sister is also one of my best friends and our picture together is shown below.
Some of my friends became my friends due to my children too. We shared a common lifestyle and our love of family brought us together and has kept us friends for many years.
One thing about having a friend is that you have to also be a friend. It’s not a one sided relationship. Always remember to show those you care about just how much you love and appreciate them.
Today is my day to do a bit of shopping and run a few errands. Other than going out with DS#5 and family on Wednesday night for the gymnastics program, I’ve spent every day here at home. But there does come a time when I need to replenish the cupboards and the refrigerator. My milk is past it’s expiration date and the bananas are getting very ripe.
They say some rain may be headed our way tomorrow so today is a good time to get out and about.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
