We've been friends longer than I can remember, or want to remember. Bobbi is an inspiration to all of us. She's the one who is always positive and usually is the "in charge" of getting us all together.
We used to live within twenty miles of each other, but now we are separated by states.
She emailed the other day to be on the look-out for a package she had mailed several days before.
She always sends us pictures of the last time we met. Sometimes just viewing those photos makes me so homesick for the three of them, but other times I'm grateful to have the memories to reflect on.
Last week she bought each of us a daily devotional. It wasn't so much the book, but the note, instruction she sent with it.
I won't quote it exactly, but what she said made me cry.
She reminded all of us how important we are to each other, and that each morning, as we read the devotional for that day, to think (and pray) for each other.
It's funny how the older we grow, we never tire of our friends. How very blessed we are to have friends who have stuck by us for many years. Friends who love us no matter what.
This morning, I'm sending love to Bobbi, Libby, and Sharon, from me.
If you are blessed to have special friends, don't forget to tell them.
I'm trying to follow Bobbi's lead.
