Life as Thank You 20

May 16, 2016 0 By Mirm

Dear Lauren,

I am so grateful for our friendship and how it has grown.  I love that we can encourage and challenge each other; it was fun being Mothers of the {bride/groom} … together with dress shopping, planning, losing weight and more.  I actually don’t think I would have enjoyed it as much without you.  Thank you for the compliments and for having lunch with me and shopping and purging, etc.  I am sooooo needy but you make me believe you enjoy my company!

Lauren, I am grateful for your generosity, your creativity, your compassion and your family.  I love that I can be totally honest with you and vent and you don’t hold it against me and always respond with the truth.  I love that you “get” me; it is easier to judge than to understand but you always give the benefit of the doubt. Thank you for being strong when I am weak, for being happy to see me, for facing problems with me, for grieving with me and including me on your adventures!  Thank you for loving my kids, for feeding my son and allowing him to be at home enough to sleep on your sofa and lounge in your tub.

You make me laugh.  You love my kids.  You remember things that are important to me.  You carry my burdens to the throne of Grace.  You are a true friend and I love that we can journey through this second half of life together.  I wish there were more like you!

May God bless you and your family with hope for the journey. May your sister move closer and your daughters-in-law increase your joy and may your tribe increase!  I love you.
