Today’s Thankful Thursday goes to my dear friend, Courtney. She flew all the way from Florida with her husband and two kids and we got a chance to catch up. Courtney and I go way back up to our college years. We did a lot of things together like studying, exercising, and pushing each other to become better in life, especially our careers. I was one of her bridesmaids and by the time it was my turn to get married, she was already in Bahrain with her husband who is an officer in the United States Navy. It’s a blessing to have such an amazing friend in my life because distance doesn’t stop us from calling each other or FaceTiming each other. We make it work because we value our friendship.
One remarkable thing that happened during our wedding which I will never forget was that, both Courtney and her husband were able to watch our wedding through webstream all the way from Bahrain. Our wedding was live streamed, which enabled my extended family and friends living outside the country to be a part of our special day. Courtney’s husband Greg told us that,on the day of our wedding, they had a flat tire. Here he was trying to change the tire to get the car rolling again while Courtney was in the car viewing the wedding ceremony. She ran out of the car with her phone screaming to Greg to watch when hubby and I were pronounced husband and wife. She cried, of course just like me, because we are that emotional, but it was tears of joy. That was the coolest thing that ever happened to us throughout the years Courtney and I have known each other and our friendship is still going strong. We don’t call each other all the time but, when we talk, we can go hours reminiscing about our past without realizing the time.
Needless to say, I am blessed to have such a friend in my life and I am forever grateful. Do you have a friend like that in your life? If you could share in couple of sentences about them, that would be awesome because I want to hear your stories. Looking forward to it and I hope you stay inspired.
