A Bookend Kind of Friend

I made this card with a special friend in mind!  She is one of a kind.  You know, the one that you can spill your heart to and she doesn't see you as less.  The kind that understands.  The kind that doesn't judge.  The kind that you just can't help but loving and appreciating.  The one that you can talk to when you're down and can't talk to anyone else.  She's the one I can cry with.  The one I can share my frustrations with...and joys too.  The one who always has a listening ear.  Being a pastor's wife there are very few people who I can really share my heart 100% with, but I can with her.  I am free to be myself.

This card is for her.

Isn't that the most perfect sentiment for a friend like the one I described?  I knew as soon as I read it who would be the recipient of a card with that sentiment!

She was at camp all week.  I had VBS all week.  We agreed to pray for each other during the week.  I am so thankful for her. 

Thank you Shannon for the kind of friend that you are to me.  I only hope that I can be that kind of friend back to you!
