i count with my fingers and my toes

"a man can count his true friends on one hand."

i came across this quote recently and as soon as i read it, i disagreed. while this might be true for some, it's not true for me. i have to use both hands and at least one foot. i've always felt extremely blessed by the friends the Lord sends my way. having walked through some tough days (read: years), i know i'm blessed to have these men and women by my side. i ask them to wear a multitude of hats and they do so with eagerness and joy. (i'm sure the Lord is adding onto their mansions in heaven for putting up with me all this time.)

seriously though, i know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my gang has my back for life and will challenge me every day that i inhale oxygen. and they'll annoy the snot out of me in how faithful they are about doing it. can't a girl get a break sometimes? sheesh! they really take that whole "iron sharpens iron" thing seriously. and in the end, i'm better for it.

so, yeah, all that to say...i'm grateful for the fact that i have to count with my fingers and my toes.
