It gives true inspiration to one's soul. When I read my friend Crystals blog, I saw she wanted to give me an award... I thought that was nice... but I got to reading the words she said about us and I must say.. it touched my heart something BIG !!! Her words were so real to me... for she had the nicest things to say about me and my whole little family. We have known eachother for a couple of years now, we go to the same Church and hang out as our friendship has grown to more like a Sister bond. This loving sweet soul sent from God has been there for me in times of joy and sadness and has endured many vents.
She has never thought ill of me, she has always lifted me up in spirit. She has excepted me for who I am and the way that I am. She has never questioned my love for her when I don't always call, e-mail or leave her comments... she knows what I truly feel without having to even say it.
She says she is an introvert, but when were together I don't see it... we get along so well. I have never in my life had a friend that could truly understand me and just plain love me for me. I don't think I am hard to love.. just a little quiet sometimes. But that's alright with her.
We have many things in common as well as our love for Christ. I consider her a Sister to me an Auntie to my children. Her and her hubby always take the time to visit with my kids.. and when I was unable to go to Church last week. I found out when my Daughter was hiding under the table because she was being excluded from some friends... Crystal was the one to wrap her wing around my little girl and comforted her. That I am thankful for.. She will make a wonderful Mother someday !!!
With all this said, my heart full of thanksgiving for our true friendship.. that she not only loves little ole' me, but she loves the whole package ( My Hubby and kids)
I am blessed.
Thank you for the sweet award... yet I appericiate the words so much more !!!! Here is what Crystal said:
I am so blessed to know this family. Mica is my best friend, but really I love her whole family. Her husband is passionate about his faith and carefully instructs his whole family. He is currently in school to become a Pastor, and I look forward to the day to see him serving as a pastor. He is insightful and caring in words and action.
Their children are talented in many ways. Their daughter has a sensitive heart of gold. She loves those who love her and has a heart to grow up to be a mommy and artist just like her mommy. It is precious.
Their son plays multiple instruments competently, and blesses those who will listen with his very own compositions! Truly amazing gifts. He's also energetic and funny.
Mica, aside from being my best friend is a talented artist, who's forte is creating unique and whimsical dolls. But truly she is an artist in anything she sets her mind to. She keeps a beautiful home, and in addition to being an artist she is a teacher and mother/housewife, all of which keep her happily busy.
The Garbarino's are a real blessing to know, and I find their family homeschool blog a wonderful snapshot of who they are, and their various artistic talents.
So dear Crystal, Sister, friend here is a very special award for you !!! Thank you for always being there for me !!!
Dear readers, do you have that special someone, a friend who gives you support, love and inspiration? Please pass this award on to them !!! Thank you for reading... may you all have a blessed remainder of the week.
