Blessed with Great Friendships

One of the things that I was praying for when I got here 3 and a half years ago was friends. Being thousands of miles away from the family, I was desperately needing friends- friends who would make me feel less homesick. In my heart of heart, I knew that God would answer this particular prayer and bring special people into my life. Back when I was traveling in Central Asia, God didn't fail to provide me wonderful friends each time I asked Him. So I never doubt He wouldn't give me friends in America. Today, I am so blessed with great friendships! All women in my neighborhood are my friends but two of them are very good friends. There's a Filipino group that I became a part of and I have made a lot of friendships in that group, but 5 of the ladies in the group are special... and one of the five is my bff. I have so many American friends but two of them are very close to me. I am forever grateful to God for the blessing of friendship!

I wrote about friendship because this morning when I woke up, a friend stopped by to bring me a big bowl of her home-made fish soup. I felt so loved! It's not her first time, she has been doing this at least once in a couple months for about three years now. I just feel so blessed!
