Knowing that you might not be surprised that the thing that matters most to me are the relationships that go deep.... the ones where people "do life" with me and where no conversations are shallow. I would love to go back and tell you about so many of those friendships that I have had over the years, but I would leave someone out (or take more of your time than you are willing to give me). I'm sure you have a list too. People who have allowed you to know them and to whom you have been willing to be known. For some people it's a very short list ... maybe a list of one. I can think of least one person that stands out in every chapter of my life who has been "my person" for that season (as our friend Meredith often said of Christina on Grey's Anatomy).
Which leads me to the ultimate blessing of my life ... the fact that I have had Jesus to "do life with me." Above and beyond all others -- He is "My person." He knows me fully and I have spent my life yearning to know Him as fully as I can. He has walked with me from the moment of my birth and nowhere I have ever moved or been has been a place He wouldn't go with me. He has never once left me to do life by myself.
So on what I have called #ThankfulThursday I give thanks for all those who have walked with me, done life with me, known me and been known. They are what has added the color to my life.
