I have many friends in my life. I am so blessed beyond measure.

Today, Theresa and I went shopping and for the first time in over a year, I will be wearing a dress tonight. I had the best time shopping for dresses and found the absolute most best sale ever. I'm a little uncomfortable wearing dresses, but I will let all that go tonight so that I can enjoy myself....not wearing my usual suits!

Then, I am coming home and recieve a phone call. Lately for me, receiving phone calls have not been entirely good news. But this one was the most precious phone call from my freind Carrie. She was full of emotion as she told me she wrote a song for me as she is mindful of all we are going though. As I got off the phone with her I couldn't help but cry. She sang it for me and it was one of the most beautiful prayer songs I've heard in a long time. She said it needed some work, but I think the words are perfect. And for her to sing it to me was priceless!!!

Father when I kneel to you my head beneath your grace
I see your loving kindness, I feel your warm embrace
I know that in my sorrow, you know my hurt is deep
And when I bow before you, that is all you need.....

Father God
Hear my prayer
I am breaking with a heart of despair
Will you come and lift my soul
Please take my heart and completely make me whole,
And I know that your here
And I know that you care
When I come to you, my soul so weak
Please Lord come and make me complete,
This is my prayer

I have so many great friends that I can not fathom life without them right now. I have never been so touched and to have a friend feel my pain and write a that is just amzaing. If there were no other blessings in my life right now, I would feel abudently blessed to have the friends I have by my side.
