Today I am thankful for the friends I count as family.
Having moved countries, I've learned that you need to have people around you. People who will laugh with you, cry with you, pull you up if you are acting out, people who are there with sound advice or just a listening ear. We all need people.
I have a large group of really good friends - people who I know I can ring at 2am and they will help any way possible. These friends are closer than some of my family to me... they ARE family to me.
I am thankful for each one of my friends who I count as family. It is an honor to share my life with them.
What are you thankful for today?
