The Gift of Friendship :)

Hello dear Bloggy Friends! I hope you are having a GREAT week! :)

The stomach flu has struck again at the Bultema house! My Benj had it 5 days last week, Amanda over the weekend, and then, last night, my little Sarah was sick in the night. (Not to mention John and I have felt lousy for days). AHHH! Sarah was too sick for Kindergarten this morning ~ so once again "my plans" are cancelled, and I stay home with sick kids. The joys of motherhood, huh?!.... :)

Imagine my surprise when my doorbell rang at 1:15 PM this afternoon. Who could it be?? Sarah and I were snuggled up cozy on the couch, still in our jammies, watching Dora. I peeked through my front door, and this is what I saw....

My dear friend Jill with special gifts just for me! :)

Jill and I usually have coffee together on Tuesday afternoons while our girls dance together in ballet class. Unfortunately our coffee date was one of the plans I had to cancel (since my little ballerina was sick)!

What a sweetheart Jill is! :) Since I couldn't meet for our usual latte, she surprised me and brought a "no foam, extra hot, venti skinny vanilla latte" to me (and with Diet Coke for later ~ what a jewel)!

Thank you, Jill, for brightening my day! Isn't friendship a beautiful thing?! :)

A friend loves at all times...... Proverbs 17:17

The Lord has blessed me with such amazing friends! They inspire me, pray for me, speak Truth to me, love on me, and accept me ~ just the way that I am.

(Not to mention, support me in so many ways ~ including through lattes!)

I am so very blessed to have such caring, thoughtful friends in my life!!

What about for you?? Who are the special women God has brought into your life?? And is there a way you could bless a special friend today??? Please share with us! I'd love to hear from you! :)

Enjoy the rest of your week!! I'm off to disinfect more things....

Many blessings to you~

P.S. The winner of the Jesus Lives Giveaway is Chellie from Art from my Table! Enjoy! :)

P.S.S. I'll be headed to West Cannon Baptist Church's MOPS group on Thursday morning to share a fun message! If the Lord brings me to mind, would you please pray?? (Among other things...that the Lord would prepare the hearts of the Mom's I'll be meeting, and that I would be healthy and well!) Thank you so very much! I'll keep you posted ~ I can't wait to see what the Lord has planned! :)
