Sometimes I look at my life and wonder why God has chosen to bless me with so much. I don't deserve it, and often, I forget to be grateful for it. But today, I am grateful for friendship. I celebrated Lucas' birth with my Bible study ladies yesterday. We had lunch at the Habitue in LeMars, a wonderful new coffee shop. As I looked around the table, I knew that God had blessed me with this unique group of women. I can look to them as examples in life stages that I have yet to reach and they are my biggest cheerleaders as I raise my family. We are all from different stages in life, but our friendship is rich, deep, and honest. And we fight for our community and choose it among the busyness of life, because it is precious.
