What A Blessing To Have Great Friends.....

This is a personal post... I normally keep my posts fashion/style related and don't post about my personal life. Today one of my best friends and women I know sent me a email titled "Gratitude". It trully  touched my heart and sent me into the UGLY cry here at work. I love this girl... she is the sister I wished for and a true RIDE OR DIE friend. We have had our ups and downs and have always come through them stronger and closer. I'm going to share her email to me... I hope that you all have people in your life that love and value you just for being you. I do...

Love and Cherish those close to you :)

Her email:

My BFTD... Teena (The Gorgeous Dork) and I


Hey girl.  I am writing/emailing because tomorrow is not promised to any of us and I just want to let you know that I am grateful to have you in my life. No matter the storms of life that occur we seem to weather the storm regardless. I often used to wonder how you and I could be close after only being friends for a few years but a couple years back I knew that it was because of God. In spite of our issue around the wedding I knew that God put you in a life for a reason and for a lifetime.  I've lost many and you've been there and been an asset to my healing and growing process. I thank  you so much for your friendship and sisterhood. I truly believe in my heart that we are destined for greatness. While I believe that and that God will allow us to fulfill some of that greatness here on earth I cannot be too invincible and think that tomorrow is guaranteed for me. With that said.... I appreciate you, your friendship, your sisterhood, your assisting with Sweetface, advice, cards, chats, laughter, etc. I need you in my life and had to let you know my gratitude. I can't wait to see what's next. I admire your creativity which is one of the reasons our spirits have connected. I pray for you daily and will continue to do so. Keep shining my friend. Lets make 2012 more ordinary. I have a few friends and I want us all to succeed but I am so grateful to know you are one that I know is always looking for ways to improve as well. I think (well I know) that this new blog journey of yours is a new doorway to success...don't let it die hun. Its your time. Love you girl... to life! Peace & Prosperity in this New Year!

Thanks for being a friend


  1. This is my AWESOME friend. I'm so glad she's able to share her talent/passion with you guys. Thanks Toni, my friend til the end. Love you mama! (We have so many better pictures than this LOL)

  2. awww, this is super duper sweet - you are very fortunate to have a friend like that in your life. I can say that I have 2 friends like that and I am fortunate and would never let them go - I love them to pieces. friends like that dont come around every day - so the good thing is to let things go when they are not so important and to talk and resolve those things that are! Awesome - thanks for sharing! have a wonderful weekend. now, let me go and email my girls - I may copy and j/k.

  3. This really touches my heart. Yes, it is nice to have friends/family who are there for you when times are the best, the worst and anywhere in between.

  4. Thanks ladies... Glad to know you all have this kind of friendship as well.. She is one of the greatest!!

  5. That is awesome! It is truly a blessing to have a friend like that! I wish you both well and a continued loving, supportive and nurtured friendship!


  6. hello beautiful, thanks for stopping by my blog! I follow you too!
    I love your shoes!
    many kisses

  7. Awww! That was so touching. Friends like that do not come around that often. Hold on to each other and do not relinquish that bond. 2012 WILL be awesome for you guys and this blog is just the first step (in a bangin' stiletto, naturally) in an amazing journey for you.


  8. Wow thats such a sweet note. It is always great to have wonderful people in your life.
