Exactly What I Need

We all know that I'm not big into the God thing lately. However, I am a firm believer that he puts the exact people in your life that you need.

Today, that was proven.

Today sucked. Seeeriously sucked. I was ready to crawl under the table and cry, kind of sucked.

And I did cry (not under a table, but if you know me at all, you know this is a big deal).

But I got through it. And not alone.

See, I have some amazing friends. And somehow, they just knew what I needed in order to not fall to pieces today.

I have my BFF, who ALWAYS knows the right things to say and managed to make me smile through my tears via Facebook posts.

Then, I had a friend come through for me last minute with my kiddos, without ever being asked.

As I drove home from class tonight, I was dreading spending the evening alone with my thoughts and a house in shambles. But I walk in the door to find friends who not only helped out with the kiddos but cleaned the house and kept me company.

So instead of feeling completely alone and overwhelmed and helpless, I got to smile and laugh and forget about everything for a while. (And I got a clean house - which in itself is a small miracle)

So really, these people came through for me when I needed them most. And that's not a coincidence.

I just hope that I can do the same for them or someone else, when they need a friend.
