I had a particularly good day yesterday, and at the end of it, when I got into bed to go to sleep, I thought about how thankful I was – how thankful I am – for friends.
Lisette from Lisette Loves writes a Thankful Thursday series and it was only last night that I felt inspired to do the same. It's good to share this sort of stuff. The only reason I picked Thursday was because it's the day after life group, a meeting I go to every Wednesday with friends from church who are around my age. I always leave there feeling uplifted and positive.

It's good to remind whoever may stumble across this little blog of mine that we always have something to be thankful for, no matter what is going on in our lives.
For the first time last night, and, ever – or since I last saw a counsellor – I talked to friends – some I would barely class as acquaintances – about what's been going on in my life in the past year. It was terrifying. I hate talking to more than two or three people at the same time. I don't like people looking at me all at once.
I thought I would cry, but I didn't, I was just happy when I went home, to have understanding, caring friends who listened. They really listened. Is there anything better than a friend like that? Who doesn't interrupt, and sit texting someone else, or nod vacantly, waiting for their turn to speak?
I am thankful for these people. I am thankful that God has touched their lives in one way or another. Friendships are fantastic. They are like family.
