Today I am thankful for...

One of the most important lessons I've learned regarding friendship, is the importance of a standing date. So often our lives become busy and without realising, weeks (sometimes even months) can go bye without making time for a friend. The best way, I found, to combat that is to have a standing date. That way, the both of you know not to make any other plans on that specific day and quite frankly, any other appointments/dates/emergencies can wait.

In Korea, me and the J(G)ills made a habit of "Tea for Three" where we got together every Wednesday for some coffee, dinner and lots of girl chat. Bongi and I had a date for breakfast and now that we both returned to South Africa, we have a monthly Skype date which is so nice. 

This year, God blessed me with yet another amazing friend. A special girl who is strong and faithful, who loves God with her whole heart and even conquered cancer in her teens.


.....and we have now perfected the habit of reserving Mondays for some home cooked comfort food, loads of chatting, even some prayer....


...and on special summer nights like tonight, a bowl of sweet strawberries.
