“The bonds of friendship aren’t forged in blood. They’re created from a sharing of the soul, a belonging like no other. When you have a friend, you have a seat at the table that has your name on it”

I am blessed in this life to be able to say – I have such a friend.

We share our joys, our tears, our secrets, and yes, our funny little jokes – to find a true friend is special – they aren’t easy to find and when we find such a friend – we don’t ever want to lose them.

My such friend – she fights for me – she believes in me – she loves me just as I am – at whatever stage I am in – at any given moment.

Oh and don’t make her mad – if I am hurt by any single thing – she hurts too – she’ll be done with you – before I even think about being done with you.

She prays for me without ceasing – she believes in me – she sees things in me I can’t see in myself. She knows behind this strong appearance that I carry – inside I am broken – like so many of us are – and yes – she encourages me to keep moving along and to let things go when I need to let things go.

She does all of this and more – in her quiet mouse-like way – but I hear it so ever clearly – each and every single day.

And it’s with no hesitation I can say – we are inseperable.

I ask myself all the time – why am I so blessed to be given such a gift? – and all I know is – God obviously knows something I don’t know – for yes – He’s smart that way.

Today is my friends birthday – so yes, we celebrate! We celebrate her beautiful soul and magical funny ways – we celebrate her genuine kindness and love she has for those around her.

We celebrate you – Melinda Gust – my friend, my confidant, my prayer partner and my joy.

I love you, I love your face – and oh yes – how I love you’re big huge understanding heart – thank you, thank you and thank you – for loving me – in spite of and never because of.

So now with this said and done – let the celebration begin!

Happy Birthday Melinda!

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period.”Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
