Grateful Saturday 22 Oct 2011

This week, like Lucy, I am grateful for friends.

I am grateful for coffee with them, phone calls with them and catching up over morning tea and lunch - check out this post by Leanne. I am grateful for the people who commented on my last post. As you could probably tell I was shattered, completely broken. But with my friends allowing me to brain dump, I'm in a much better place.

As always I am grateful for coffee and for people not thinking I'm a crazy stalker (thanks http://deepfriedfruit.blogspot.com).

I am also grateful to my family. They coped with the crying, desolation and the anger. Especially to a member of member of my extended family who heard a very abridged version of the story and told me that I was the right mother for Boy Child. Wow, it was so unexpected but so what I needed to hear at the time.

So once again, I'm joining in with the Wonderful Maxabella. What are you grateful for?

Yes, yes, yes. Thank god for friends and for those sentences that speak right into us. And though it's a wholly impossible concept to accept in the moment, but I do have faith that the hardest most painful times we are delivered are actually what we are ordained to experience. Sometimes it's overwhelmingly shite. I honour your ability to take this on.

Friends are amazing aren't they? I love the friends I've met over the Internet but nothing beats sitting down with someone in real life ya know?
Have a great weekend

Nothing like good friends, family and coffee to get you through the hard times. Glad you have all of them!
