Some of my best friends are girls I see less than once a year. My college roommates. We are all in the same place in life- busy, busy, busy with kids, husbands, jobs, churches, ministries, and more babies!We try to see each other at least every year, and it doesn't always happen. But when it does, it is a joy.
This month was time for our trip and we were fortunate enough to go to Kiawah Island, right outside Charleston, SC. And in the fashion of God's sense of humor, the weekend of the trip-that we had scheduled months in advance-- turned out to be the time of the move into my new house.
Ahhhhhhh. Crazy times. I planned everything I could before I left, made lists and emails and phone calls, then relied on my husband to carry it out. Then kept up with the move via cell phone! A little. In between meals, crying and talking- which is all we do when we get together!
I started chasing the seagulls. There were hundreds!

Saying hello to my son back home via photo...
(he likes it when I send him photos of what I am doing)
Stopping at a street vendor for a Mexican Coke with real sugar
It made me laugh to look up from my beach chair
and see Stephanie and Shannon both reading the same book- Heaven is For Real!
(Its a sweet book, by the way)
|Flying on September 11. That was a little creepy!|
Do you have a dear friend in your life? Why don't you shoot her an email- or better yet- call her and tell her you love her today! It will encourage YOU to encourage her!
