These are the people

My sweet friend Holly repeats this saying to me quite often and tonight it resounds in my head more fervently.

"People come into our lives for reasons we may never know. Sometimes they come for a short while and others for much longer periods of time, but believe it or not they come when we need them to"

I am still amazed at the sweet spirits I have in my life. I always know who to call when I need a boost of confidence, a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with and someone to reminisce with. I know who will pick up the phone at late hours of the night because yet again, I can't fall asleep. I know who to call in the middle of the day when the boy I like smiled at me and I need help interpreting that. I know who to call when I just give up and can't push forward anymore. I have endless lists of friends who just know how to pick me up when my wings have trouble remembering how to fly. I can't say enough on how much these people make a difference in my life... most of the time they don't even know they are making a difference. The last couple of weeks have been difficult, even after making the decision to stay, and still I have my rocks, my hero's, my comforters, my friends in my life cheering me on and pushing me forward. Sometimes I get upset with Heavenly Father, afraid that maybe He just isn't as aware of me as I had hoped. Then I look around and see the good people he has blessed me with and know that He uses them to help me down the rocky road I have come to.

These are the people I look up to. These are the woman and men that I hope someday I can be like. These are the people who have all the answers to my much needed questions. These are my friends.
