thankful for friends

A friend of a friend started a daily blog post called "30 Thankful Days" for the month of November. I got started a little late but I am enjoying this reflective season of thankfulness. You can check out other thankful day blogs by clicking on the image below.


Today I am thankful for new friends. I suppose some of them aren't exactly new anymore . . . but there are a few who are. Chris and I moved to San Francisco without knowing anybody. That was scary to say the least. We were introduced to a friend of a friend via Facebook and she introduced us to her friends and church and the rest is history! I never imagined I would find such a wonderful group of people right off the bat.

And as new people come into the church they come into my life and I am so thankful for them too! I rarely get tired of learning about other people -- finding out their passions and hopes, hearing their struggles and fears-- and being a part of their lives and having them in mine.

Last night, we had dinner with a couple of these new friends (new to me anyway). I felt very blessed to be welcomed into their home and into their lives. Friends are very special.

What are you thankful for today?
