Day 4 of being thankful

This morning I was asked to review some bad events that happened in June. You know... the miscarriage and my grandfather's death. Horrific, both of them.

Anyway, while updating this person I really realized what a great group of girls I know. I will probably never meet them because they live all over the country, and some in other countries. We have known each other for years, 8 years to be exact. When I joined a message board for Single Mom's on a popular site......I had no idea I would share my daughters whole life with them. Some of these girls were there when my daughter was a crazy fit throwing toddler, others helped me blend my family, some you just connect instantly with. I had no clue that they would know I was pregnant even before my mom did. They have seen me through good times and bad times, ups and downs, a crazy roller coaster ride of life and they still love me unconditionally. And I them.

I am so thankful to have these girls!!

Head over to Serenity Now and join in on the Happy thoughts!

Aww my Kel you almost made *me* cry! Stop that!

I wasn't there when M was a fit throwing toddler...or maybe I was but the board was so huge at that time. I found it when Riley was about 1.5 years...but I totally remember you meeting T ;)

One day I hope to give you a big ole hug in person...even if we don't even live in the same country!

Thanks for linking up today. :) Having good friends you can confide in when you're a mom is SO important. :)

It's amazing how people you've never met and most likely never will meet can be such a supportive lifeline at times :)
