Yesterday I was thankful for family that are friends...
today I am thankful for the friends that become family!
I've read a saying that friends are the family you choose....
...and I have been blessed with some very special ones!
First is Reyn BFF. We have been friends for ....mumble...mumble...well, I'm not going to put how many years but since we were both in 2nd grade FOREVER ago. She and I were both the "new girls" as we moved to the school district at about the same time.
She shouted in a boy's ear that was harassing me....and we've been BFFs ever since. She is one of my most diligent encouragers of my blog and leaves comments all the time so I know that I'm not just writing to the wind. She has always been an encouragement to me and has supported me in everything...hairbrained or not! She is my sounding board, my joy, and is one of those friends that you can call at 3 am crying and making no sense...and she understands.
I'm so, so blessed...
|My Soul Sisters|
|Me and KA (the awesome lady that recently did our portraits! |
and the one that takes cryptic FB posts and comes to the rescue)
|Not the greatest picture...I don't have a picture of my friend, HH, probably because she's frequently off patching up a booboo on one of their 5 kids-the oldest son is Boy's BFF)|
Just yesterday, I was chatting with both my cousin BFF, and my BIFF. I said basically the same thing about my day to both of them (in separate chats) and they both came back with the SAME response!
I am wonderfully Blessed and so very thankful to have these lovely women to share my confidences and heart with, knowing that they will come along side of me and pray for me. There are many people that I consider my friends, and I love them for what they are to me, but for most there are only little segments and pieces of my life that they share....unlike these 4 women that know it all...and love me anyway!
