Thursday 13

What happens when you've made this silly commitment to post on your blog everyday and you look at the clock and it 5:33 p.m. and you realize you have to be someplace in 45 minutes, and you can't think of anything to say?

You look for a meme.

I recall a long time ago doing a meme called Thursday Thirteen, so I looked it up and sure enough it still exists. So, in the spirit of the Giving Thanks Challenge, here are

13 Things I'm Thankful for In a Friendship

1. Honesty
2. Sense of humor
3. Not afraid to challenge me
4. and knows when
not to challenge me and let me rant
5. Will shop with me at boutiques and at Target
6. Loves my family
7. Will watch chic flicks with me and sit through the credits when the movie is over.
8. Listen to me tell the plots for my favorite books from beginning to end.
9. Drink Starbucks with me
10. Knows my favorite dessert
11. Waited and then rejoiced with me when my babies were born.
12. Will offer to go with me to the tough places -- a scary doctor appointment, my first visit back to the cemetery when I lost my mom, my first lip wax.
13. Remembers who I was before I became a wife and mom, and loves me for it.

Love #13! How quickly people can forget that there was a time before I was a mom and wife.
