My Hands Are Yours God

My name is Tammy and I am a mother of 2 precious girls, wife to an amazing man, (and my best friend) and a woman who is so in love with her Savior. I love to write, poetry is my usual course. For the most part, there is a story behind them all. Sometimes, I just want to write.

Best Friend- not everyone gets a best friend who gives you more than you can hope to give back.....

I don't think you get just how much I care, or really how deeply our friendship goes.
Sometimes I don't quite get it, so I am sure no one really knows.
So I have to think back, long before I knew you, to who I used to be.
And when I look in that mirror is when I truly am able to see.
Inward I looked and walked through my days.
The memories of that life are somewhat a haze.

I spent most my time reflecting on everything "me".
Blind to this world I just couldn't see.
Then one day our worlds collided just right.
The first time I met you, man what a sight!
Who could have known what was happening then.
A stranger and mom was becoming my friend.

In pride I was looking for all I could give and do
for this young mom who's faith was so new.
But I had forgotten all I had learned.
And your love for others made me yearn...

Yearn to be more than what I had been.
Yearn to give myself more as a friend.
Yearn to learn what true sacrifice meant.
Yearn to be more like the One that was sent.

If I go a day or two or three and forget to say.
how much my life changed on that hot summer day.
You're the best friend God has ever given to me,
If BFF is possible, then I hope we will be.
