I’ve had a beautiful evening. A dear ex-flatmate who now lives a long way away phoned up this evening for a chat before a couple of my most treasured friends appeared on the doorstep to tell me they’d got engaged.
It was just beautiful, made all the sweeter having shared the years of journeying it took to get to this point. It wasn’t a moment for detail, but one of joy, simply the celebration of something inherently beautiful.
I have been blessed with friends. People who know and understand me, friends with whom I have a history, people I can unashamedly share my passions, joys, disappointments and struggles with. God has shown me such favour in giving me these people and I thank God for them.
