My goodness, friends. After I posted yesterday, I heard so much bad news. It's crazy how much hearing those life-altering things can make you realize what's actually important. (No matter how I prioritize, my tv habits aren't.) Still, I'm focusing on HAPPY for the month of October, and I have a lot to be happy about/grateful for in every moment.
I am HAPPY that I have people in my life who love me and love on me. I am grateful to have friends who get down in my junk with me to help me work through life. I'm really happy to be able to get in the trenches of loss and temptation with my friends. It's so amazing and beautiful to get in each others messes and work it out. I think maybe God gives us friends as a tangible way to be physically next to us.
So whether you spend your weekend at a wedding or birthday party or whether you spend your weekend mourning a great loss, be happy in knowing that you are loved and never alone.
