I want to thank you for the notes of encouragement, the emails, Facebook messages, and blog comments from my post over the weekend.  I can’t possibly respond to all of them, but I want you to know that we have read them and they have meant the world to us.

I also want you to know I have not given up.  God is the God of miracles and I know you have joined me in praying that.

As you can imagine, the past four months have been hard.

I would never have made it without my friends who have carried me through this season.

When I can’t find the words to pray, they pray with and for me. When I’m feeling lonely, they text me at just the right moment.  When I’m weary, they encourage me to rest and to let things go that I usually would stay on top of.  When I’m fearful, they bring me peace by sharing God’s truth.  They’ve each taken turns staying with me and the kids this weekend until my father and sister arrived.

Having good friends is like having money in the bank. They are there when you need to make a withdrawal when life gets rough.  Let me tell you, I’ve been making a lot of withdrawals lately.

How is your friendship bank?  Is it time to make some investments?  Life has its ups and downs and we need each other through both.

Today’s Motivation Monday challenge is to call a friend you want to get to know better or invest in a friendship you already have.  Set up coffee, arrange a girls night out, do something to get some money in your friendship bank…you never know when you’ll need to make a withdrawal.
