Trust, Friendship and Gratefulness...

Wednesday morning, I awoke early.  Being a good gal, I went to the YMCA/YWCA (Y) about 6:30 a.m., and did my pool exercise.  Yeah!!!!

Truly, I do enjoy working out in the pool.

The water feels so very relaxing, even though I am exercising, stretching, using my body in ways I cannot do, outside the water.  Ahhh... afterwards, my body and muscles feel great.  At least, until I begin to feel rather tired!

Yes, this happens to me, regularly.  At least, lately.  I believe it may be due to having been rather ill over the past few weeks, even if I am feeling better, now.

I suppose I will just have to trust God to provide me with the strength I had, in the past.  And, work on making myself stronger, again.

One thing I enjoy about doing my exercise early in the morning like that, is the fact that it doesn't interfere with the rest of my day.  Even if I arrive home exhausted and have a short 20-30 minute nap or relaxation time, it still leaves the rest of my day for working and doing things in my schedule, without tearing apart my day.

After doing some of what I needed to do for the day, I made my way to Red Lobster seafood restaurant, where I was meeting my friend A, for lunch.

A and I meet on a fairly regular basis, but it had been a while since we had enjoyed a meal and fellowship time, together.  A enjoyed her haddock, while I enjoyed stuffed sole.  Hmmm.... good!  Thank you for treating me to such a tasty meal and fabulous time, together.  I felt totally and completely blessed.

Of course, our fellowship time was fabulous!  We talked and talked until we both wondered if the restaurant would charge us rent!  lol :-))  I must admit, our server was very patient with us.  Thankfully, so.

Just so you know, A and I met shortly after I began selling real estate, in early 1988.  In fact, I had been hired to lease commercial space at the hotel she worked at. 

Over the years, our relationship that began as a working one, grew and developed into a real-life friendship.  Today, I cannot imagine my life without A in it! 

Thank You, Lord... for A!  In fact, I thank You, for each and every one of my friends.  You have truly blessed me, Lord.

I would like to say how thankful I am that You provided for another of my friends.  J and my friendship began on Facebook (FB), but now we are real-life friends, also.

It was one (1) year ago today, when J had a double-lung transplant.  Thank You, dear Lord, for providing for J, when she truly needed You, most.  Thank You, for providing for her family, also.  Thank You, that you have handled each circumstance that has arisen, in J's healing process.

Mostly, I would like to thank You, for each and every one of my friends who prayed for J, her family... and for all who pray for others, regularly.  May You truly bless them, Lord!


Until next time...
