This is my designated month to be thankful for true friends! I know many of you have friends that you can count on, no matter what is going on in your life. The last several months I have taken advantage of friends in prayer groups, without questions asked, and I am thankful. I’ve been blessed to be included in the prayers of so many wonderful people. Those of us who believe, know how prayer can change any situation. It saddens me to think of people who don’t have that faith. Faith is what gets you up in the morning and keeps you going. Faith is knowing your are never alone, no matter how much it may feel like it at times. Faith is what keeps you from giving up and giving in. To my friends going through difficult times, it may sound trite, but I always encourage them to keep the faith. Faith is what we are.
