Undeserved Blessings

Friends, thank you. Thank you for calling me early in the morning to go running with you, even after I've said no the past four times you asked. Thank you for remembering my birthday, even after I forgot yours. Thank you for asking me how my day is, even when I'm scowling. Thank you for writing me thank you cards, and cheery notes, and sending uplifting emails when I'm having a rough time. Thank you for the invitations to your houses and apartments, even though I don't reciprocate. Thank you for making time for me, even when I'm too busy to listen to you. Thank you for bringing me food when you know I don't have time to eat supper. Thank you for bringing me things I've forgotten. Thank you for listening when I want to talk, and talking when I don't. Thank you for encouraging me, for smiling at me, for rebuking me, for playing ultimate frisbee with me, for singing with me, for praying for me. Thank you for being my friends. Thank you for sharing Jesus with me. Thank you.

Excelsior
