I feel the need to give my "brothers" a shout out. What I mean when I say "brothers" are some awesome guy friends that I have been blessed with. These guys have been great to get to know over the past few years and I just feel so lucky to be able to call them friends!!
Now ladies....we all know that not many things can top a girl's night...I'm not trying to argue that! But there is just something also very special about hanging out with some of your guy friends as well.
Tonight I went out to a little social gathering, party, what have you with a big group of friends from my church. We had an awesome time playing games and just laughing with each other!
On our drive home, I was actually "stuck" with 4 of my guy friends. By the time the ride was over, my stomach hurt from laughing so hard. It's so cool to feel as though I can just be myself around these guys.
Why do I feel that way?
Because I know they respect me, and in turn I respect them. I know that they would be there for me if I needed them to. I also know that they care about me as their sister. Those things mean a lot to me. It makes me feel safe, cared for, and valued.
I understand that there are boundaries that need to be put in place in any guy/girl friendship, and I enjoy those healthy relationships. I see Jesus in the guys I hang out with.
So brothers, whether you be my "little brothers" or my "older brothers"...just know...you are AWESOME!
