Fate and Friendship

Have you ever wondered if fate determines friendship? I thought a lot about this on Monday as Emma and I (and eventually Jeff) spent all afternoon and evening with, what I affectionately call, “The Crew”. We hadn’t seen each other in a couple of weeks and it was obvious that we missed each other.

We are made up of three families, living within a half block of each other. There are a total of five kids ranging in age from 16 months to four years. The couples range in age and length of marriage by several years. We have varying jobs, hobbies, and interests.

So, here’s my question. Did fate, God, the universe (whatever you want to call it) bring us to these houses so close in proximity because the friendships were destined? Or did we just happen to live close to each other, meet, and become such good friends on our own? Maybe it’s a bit of both, but I tend to believe that God had a hand in it, because these people mean so much to me. I can count on them, lean on them, and most of all, be happy with them. We laugh so much!

Bottom line…I really love these people and feel deep gratitude for their place in our life.

Thankful Thursday

imageimageimageHelping Hands of Nocatee delivered lots and lots of food and household items to some neighbors in need today. Our first delivery was on the third floor of an apartment complex with no elevator. We recruited a few helpers, including a mom with her six homeschooled kids. Wow! Those kids were awesome! We made it up in one trip and I only carried two bags!

The second delivery was even easier. We barely had to leave the car.

So, today, I am thankful for two things.

  1. Generous and helpful people.

  2. Abundance in my own life.

So very thankful.
