November is for Thanks | Day 5

Today I am thankful for the people who have loved and invested in my family. The people who have shown their love and faithfulness to us by their willingness to be there for us and to love us well. The people who make my kids feel loved and special. The people who have allowed us the time and opportunity to love them. 
You would think this would be easy to find as a Christian, a pastor even, but, sadly, it's not. I don't mean that in a harsh way. It has been true everywhere we've lived. People are busy, they have their own lives. But, every once in a while, you find those people. People who become a part of your life. People who become family in a deeper sense of the word. 
It is not easy to live so far away from family. My kids do not have a lot of people who take time to love on them and invest in them. So, when those people come along, they are incredibly special to our family and our kids.
So, yeah, that's what I am thankful for. I am thankful for the friends who have loved and will always be loved like family. #30daysoflittlethings
