"I thank God upon every remembrance of you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now..." Philippians 1:3-5
I'll be honest.
I was not looking forward to the holidays this year. In fact, the thought of Christmas is still a little daunting to me.
But God is good. And when my skeptical heart said, "Really? A holiday to count my blessings?" I was met with some pretty huge reasons why I should be doing just that.
There really is nothing like sisterhood.
It was pretty exciting to bring two of my favorite ladies from New York home to Kentucky and introduce them to my childhood community and say, "See, this is why New York is so important to me. This is part of the community that continues to help me grow and love and change."
People in Kentucky can be pretty skeptical about why New York is a place worth visiting. I can't count how much I introduced friends from NYC and heard "New York? That's somewhere you will never see me go."
But I think we showed them that sisters like this makes a lot of the homesickness, lack of grass and rent checks feel totally worth it.
