Last night a good friend came in town and my husband went to meet him for a beer.  Andy has been in both of our lives for many years and the excitement my husband felt when he got to spend some time with an old friend was adorable.  It's that feeling that no matter how long you've been apart, when you're together, everything is the same.  I love that.  It's a good feeling to know you've got true friends.

So, today I am thankful for my friends - friends that are more like sisters.  Friends that are honest and real.  Friends that know way too much about me, but love me anyway.  Friends that I will grow old with.  I am thankful for emails, texts and phone calls when we can't be together.  I am thankful that when I am a bad friend, they are good friends.  Thankful they are there in every walk of life.  You could have 50 or you could have 5.  Whatever your number, cherish those true friendships.  Cling to them when life gets rough but also when life is peachy.  Let them share in you joys just as you need them in your sorrows.  God has placed these people in your life for a reason.  Love them, encourage them and most importantly, make them smile. 

To my girls,
I don’t tell you enough how much I love you and how much you mean to me.  Thank you for standing beside me in all of my joys and all of my sad times.  You are my sisters.
