Our family has a special tradition that we do around Thanksgiving time. Every year we select 3-4 friends and/or families that God has brought into our lives or that we have been blessed to know better in the past year, – and we make what we call a “BLESSING BASKET” for them.
The basket is filled with a variety of items, including some homemade goodies. It is our way of honoring their friendship and letting them know in a unique and special way, – how truly grateful we are for them in our lives. Friends are a gift from the Lord.
“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter: he that has found one has found a treasure.”
– Sirach 6:14
Start a new tradition this year and thank God for the blessing of friends!
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” – Proverbs 27:17
