February already....time sure is flying in 2010. Maybe it has nothing to do with the year...but the years of my life. It's been said "the older you get , the faster time goes". Also, "time flies when you're having fun". Either could fit my situation. I don't know why I'm writing about time passing quickly because it has nothing to do with this post. Maybe it does....I'm talking about February....started to write about the one I love (my husband), but will save that for later. Instead, I'll write about friends. I hope that you are blessed with a best friend...can't imagine life without one. Today I will tell you what I love about my best friend.
  • She knows every thing about me (good & bad) and still loves me.
  • She will buy me something for Christmas and tell me what to do with it....not only tell me, but come rearrange my entire bedroom in doing so.
  • She will call and tell me that she is bringing pizza to my house for dinner if she knows I've had a very bad day.
  • She will take things from my attic (and any other place) to make my mantel look great.
  • She will tell me that I need to add more pillows on my bench (that I thought looked great) and I know that she told the truth.
  • She will call me most every day .... just because we have to check in.
  • She will meet me at the oral surgeon's office because she knows I'm scared to death of a dentist.
  • She decorated my Christmas tree one year. I had just put it up when my aunt passed has never looked that good again.
  • She will be able to look at me and know exactly what I am thinking.
  • She will take things from my "throw away" pile and use it in her house and make me covet.
  • She loves old things (I'm not talking about me).
  • She loves me.... no matter what.........................!!!!

I have a friend like that who is not afraid to "Clean my clock" and tell me if I am doing something wrong. Just yesterday I was reading the verse... "Faithful are the wounds of a friend... Proverbs 27:6 a
