November 5

Today I’m thankful for friends who basically become family. We had a few friends like this in the states before we came (Hi, Morgan! Hi, Kimberly!), but I think it takes on new meaning within the expat community. With our real families so far away, we celebrate holidays, birthdays, good days, bad days…everything with our family here. They go through the nitty gritty with us, they weep with us, they rejoice with us. It’s such a blessing to have brothers and sisters in Christ who really function just like that – as brothers and sisters. And these friends have been the best aunts and uncles to Lincoln since he’s so far away from his real ones. Such a blessing.
