It's time for another edition of Thankful Thursdays, hosted by Rebecca at The Road Home.
Today, I am thankful:
For my friend TOOJE (aka "Jessica"). Do you know that I wouldn't have a blog if I hadn't stumbled onto hers a couple of years ago? I worked with her and we became Facebook friends first. Then I came across one of her blogposts, read it and saw where she referenced "The Catholic Lady" at work (and I figured out it was me!!!) We've become a bit better than acquaintances I would say. And I'm so thankful to have her in my life!
Leading on from #1...I am thankful that I started to blog because through Jessica and through my blog, I met Rebecca! I can't tell you how much I appreciate this friendship. Sometimes it's nice to know that someone else out in the big, bad world had an experience so similar to your own. Rebecca and I share the experience of growing up "cradle Catholic" and largely ignorant of the teachings of our faith. Then discovering the truths of our Catholic faith as adults. We share the experience of growing up in a divorced household. We share a love of sports for our respective schools. I'm so thankful to have Rebecca in my life!
