Heaven Sent Friends

Good Morning Friends,

I hope all is merry and bright as you reflect on what you are thankful for this Thursday.

As the year winds down, I’m grateful for the space to analyze all the happenings of 2023.  One fact that is blaringly clear to me about this year- I have been blessed with so many old and new incredible friends!!  From amazing clients, to fellow group members, to mentors, to associations with other parents, coaches and entrepreneurs… My year has been full of so many high caliber friends!! I am thankful for this abundance of beautiful relationships that came into my life this year. 

I love this quote from CS Lewis which one of these 2023 friends shared with me yesterday:

“In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting–any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.” The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” -CS Lewis

What a beautiful gift friends are!! I believe women especially need each other.  I know friendships are heaven sent and my heart is so grateful for the abundance of friends that make life so rich. Thank you for being one of my friends. I appreciate you!

As you reflect on your 2023, what are the blessings that stand out? I challenge you to take some time to journal about them and land in gratitude as 2023 wraps up. 


Rooting for you always,
