One of my favorite things is friendship.
Uh, yeah. Pretty simplistic, or even cliche, right?
I know, I know.
But, it's true!
You see, growing up, I didn't have a ton of friends. When I married my husband, I "inherited" a ton of insta-friends. I was in hog heaven!
But something was missing.
I needed, as Anne of Green Gables would say, a "bosom" friend or kindred spirit.
I prayed and prayed and prayed.
And guess what? My prayer was answered. Multiple times.
I have been abundantly blessed with dear friends. The kind of friends that will be there, even throughout eternity.
Holy Cow! That is an incredible thought! Maybe one of the best gifts of heaven will be not only spending eternity with my Redeemer, but with my most precious friends.
One of the best things about my friends is that their husbands are friends of my husband. Their kids are my kids' best friends.
We've seriously talked about building a huge compound for us all to live in.
It's that scary, folks.
This picture was taken by one of my dearest friends, Allison.
She's so talented. Wouldn't you agree?
I guess it doesn't hurt that her subjects are just unbelievably adorable.
This is what it says to me:
I love being with you. You are my best friends. Do you want to come live at my house? Ask your Mama to ask my Mama.
Because life is just too short not to be joyful, y'all.
