Life as Thank You #41
I am writing old school thank you notes this year to increase my gratitude and let people know how much I value them. In honor of your birthday today, I thought I would tell you how thankful I am for you. I am grateful for your intentionality and faithfulness in relationships. I am thankful for your shepherding heart, your pursuit of spiritual things, your consistency in prayer.
Thank you for keeping track of Jim (and me) since high school. I love how his relationship with you took a back seat to our own friendship over the years, but how that history created depth and meaning for us.
Thank you for listening, for remembering, and for valuing me even when we hold differing opinions. I am grateful how you sharpen me and challenge me. I am thankful for things you have taught me about friendship and for being such a good friend.
May God continue to bless you and Gordon with joy and hope.
