Surrounded by Greatness

Wherever I turn, I see the people I love being excellent. Most of my friends have amazing gifts and talents. Because they are strong believers, they are led by the gift giver, God, to their talents. I have seen them nurture their skills and grow incredibly.

I spent the evening with my friend Jan, who wrote a book, look for my upcoming review. And Sabie, who plays piano, paints, runs a nursing home ministry, mentors inmates, runs a book store and grows beautiful flowers.


And then, I came home to my laptop. I remembered to visit my friend Vika's new blog. Yes, Vika who speaks 6 languages while I am still mastering English.  The one who is an amazing Mom. Yes, she takes pictures. Even the ones she takes of me, I can tolerate. She has an incredible eye and she enjoys every minute of it. She has taken her passion and turned it into a part-time career, when she is not doting on her little blessing, Polli.

I'm so impressed with the friends that God has blessed me with. I'm hoping the excellence will rub off on me. I am always amazed at what God does in the lives of His children.

"My friends are my estate."- Emily Dickinson

Are you surrounded by over-achievers? Do your friends amaze you? Let them know. Follow the advice of Anna Cummins.

"Do not save your loving speeches                  
For your friends till they are dead; 
Do not write them on their tombstones; 
Speak them rather now instead.


Thanks for stopping by,
