Friends and Gratitude

These days I seem to be doing a lot of reflecting.  It might be because of all the spare time I have at night, or it might be from all the praying I seem to be doing, or it might be from influences from the ones I love, I am not sure, but I seem to be thinking a lot about friendship these days.  It came up in church on Sunday too.  However, I seem to be unfriending a lot of people on facebook these days.  Why?  Well, sometimes we all need a little unfriending in our lives.  Do we really know the people that have access to our lives and person information on facebook, really?  Do you really want them having that much access into your life?  Really?  Well, I don't, not really, not anymore... I am learning to be discerning.  This is an acquired skill for me, one that I am learning slowly, bit-by-bit. 

And another thing I have been learning is to be grateful, thankful, and notice the blessings of friendship in my life.  For example, I am so thankful for some of the women God has blessed me with recently.  They have showered me with love and affection and give me their time.  Most of them don't have much time, but they give it to me anyway.  So I am thankful for Agnes, Thalie, Izabela, and Elisabeth for being in my life.  Without you, I would be more lonely than I already am.  I also need to thank the wonderful man in my life as well.  Thank you for being patient with me and putting up with my annoying incessant calls, texts, mails, and more.  Thank you for trying and being what I need in life.  And most importantly, thank you for loving me. 

I am trying out a lot of new things this year.  I am trying to be more active in life and really digging into things.  I am also trying to be patient, this is not so easy, but I am trying it out.  It is now May, we are five months into the New Year, therefore, we are almost to the half-way point.  Are you succeeding on any of the goals you started with in the beginning of the year?  Or do you need to be reminded that you had those resolutions way back when and you lost track of time???  Either way, it's not about the years, it's about living in the moment and making a difference each day.  The one lesson I keep re-learning this year and keep reminding myself is this, no matter how bad my day is, there is a huge chance that when I wake up tomorrow, a good day will come.
