End of Day Reflections

As I was sitting on my porch last night watching the sun set I reflected on my day that was.  While much happened the highlight of my day was three conversations I had with friends, NACFM friends.

In the conversations we caught up a little, we laughed a little, we encouraged each other a little, and we…

I reflected on how much those friendships mean to me.  Years back I met each of them not knowing what time as friends would bring.  I know now that they are friends I thank God for.

They are friends I can tell anything to.  They are friends I care deeply for.  They are friends I celebrate with and hurt with.  They are friends I pray with and for.  They are friends who do the same for me.

My NACFM friends are kindred spirits as well.  They do what I do.  They know what an average day is like for me.  They know the challenges I face.  They know what’s it’s like to be on call 24/7.  They share the struggle of the juggle (balance family with work).  They are me.  

I can’t place a value on someone who gets me and loves me and shares life with me.  For that I just do not have the words.  I can however place a value on how I came to know them, through the NACFM.  I have so much I am thankful for as a member of the NACFM but there is no question the greatest value I get from being an active member are friendships, lifelong!

You need a someone to talk to and laugh with, someone to confide in, someone to hurt with you, or someone to pray with you?  Look to your friends of the NACFM.
