A Few Words on Friendship

I am very blessed to have many wonderful friends in my life. Some are older, some are younger, a few have come in and out of my life quickly, others have stayed through thick and thin, a few are family, others sisters in Christ, some have grown with me, some have outgrown me, I have history with some of them, others I am only beginning to know. God has time and again brought different people into my life at just the right time to bring love and encouragement to me in their own special ways. I am blessed by so many wonderful women. This is a small tribute to all the the great friendships that I've had throughout my life and those to come.

"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.
Before him I may think aloud."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is the VU/CCF girls at my wedding!

"Thus nature has no love for solitude, and always leans,
as it were, on some support; and the sweetest support
is found in the most intimate friendship."
- Cicero

Me and my VU/CCF girls(and Lauren, my sis) this January.

"If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through
life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir,
should keep his friendship in constant repair."
- Samuel Johnson

Me and a few of my mommy friends!

"Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own
reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company."
- George Washington

A few of my GFC girls at retreat!

"True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand
the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation."
- George Washington

*I did not wish to leave anyone out. Sadly I do not have pictures with all the people that I consider to be my friends. I wish I could have included everyone but alas, these are only a couple of group shots. For those who I don't have pictured here..... we should take a pix together sometime soon! If you have any pictures of us together that I might not have a copy of please send them my way! Love you all!

Very nice, Lawana! I hadn't seen that one of the ladies of GFC yet! It's so good! I'm glad you have such good friends!

I'll come over this week so we can take some pictures together. I can't believe that you left me out. Sheesh. :)

Oh, and nice picture of the old church building. And I'm not even going to make the usual joke where I blame you and Isaac for burning it down. Oh, wait...too late. :)

I'm VERY glad that you are my friend even if I didn't make it into the pictures (plus, they were all chicks). I've known you since you were a kid in the youth group and now you're such an awesome mom.

Love the picture!! My girls LOVE their boas!!! They make great accessories - especially since my two year old would rather be without her clothes!!!

How did you find my blog?
