If there is one thing that I have learnt lately it is the importance of friends. A day does not go by that I don’t get one to three phone calls or three to five bb’s from different friends sending me silly messages, pictures of coffee or just to say hi! The lesson that I learnt is that had I not been a friend to these wonderful crazy people in the past, then they would not have been here and so I must be doing something right.
I also have a tendency to meet people and I have found so many new friends and people like Louise, Judy, Storm, C (you know who you are), Chase and Christine that inspire me that I thank the Lord everyday for them! Ok, one person that I met, I decided not to be friends with and that is a whole different story (some of you might know and includes me being my crazy self and going for coffee) but everyone else, you got me for life buddies! I think what I am trying to say is that people and family are important and they will always be there for you. They may give you advice and challenge you and make your brain want to explode with ideas and sometimes you meet them in the most random places and they become a part of you! I’ve learnt so many new things and laughed about some really silly things but I’m learning and as one friend said, God will send you who you need for when you need it the most and then that person will leave when they have fulfilled the role that God intended them for.
So thank you to Michelle, Jessi, Kobus, Storm, C, Maritha, Steven, Jolana, Claudia, Mom, Chase, Karen, Oat, Judy, Charlotte, Louise, Christine, Lucille, William, Liezel, Catherine, Kirsten, Elmare and anyone who I have forgotten for being there for me, you mean the world to me! :0) And thank you for making me laugh and reminding me that I am special and that I am so much stronger than I give myself credit for!
