I Thanked G-d For You This Morning

I thanked G-d for you this morning.  Yes, YOU.

I thanked Him for your honesty.

I thanked Him for your standing by my side through some of the most painful, tragic things.

I thanked Him for your presence at some of the most joyous times of my life.

I thanked Him for your smile, your laugh and for your looks that speak volumes.

I thanked Him for the phone calls, texts and messages that have come from you at the most amazing times.

I thanked Him for your wisdom, teaching and understanding that have had way more impact than you could have ever known.

I thanked Him for you holding my hand, your loving hugs and for the times that you let me cry on your shoulder.

I thanked Him for your care and protection when I couldn't protect myself.

I thanked Him for your hospitality, your willingness in friendship and for your fellowship which I needed so desperately.

I thanked Him for all the times you wanted to spend time with me regardless of my mood.

I thanked Him for the times that we were able to sing and worship together.

I thanked Him for all the memories of you that have lodged themselves into my very being.

I thanked Him for your forgiveness.

I thanked Him for you.  Yes, YOU.

You are a very part of me.
Yes, you mean the world to me.

And I thanked G-d for you this morning.

I'm sure it won't be the last time.


Dedicated to my close friend and dearest sister, Laura.  
I love you more than I can say.
