The Best Friends Ever!

I have the best, most incredible, fabulous, gracious, generous, beautiful and loving friends ever! Really! I am so spoiled and blessed! The Lord knows that my body requires good girl friends. I crave time with girl friends. And He has sent me the best ones ever, over and beyond what I could have imagined in a girlfriend. They are so kind. With each one of them I have had many moments of sharing each other's dreams, problems, and laughter. Some have been in my life for years, since we were freshmen in college and some have been in my life only the last couple of years. But the amount of delightful memories is equal. We truly love each other. We share our love for good books, families, laughs, God, eating, and shopping. We have invested so much of ourselves in each other. It would be impossible for me to be provided with better friends.

My 28th birthday is today and last night Amy, Amanda, Sunni, Rebecca, Becca, Corey, Melissa, Kristin, and Lynnann took me out for my birthday to Joe T Garcia's! For months I have been talking about and obsessing over how much I want a new camera! My thoughtful friends all chipped in and got me a significant amount on an American Express gift card to go towards my camera fund. And they put it in a very nice camera case! They knew that is what I would want the most! AND they got me a giant cookie cake, which they also know is my favorite!! Their thoughtfulness last night overwhelmed me.

Then to top it off, Sunni, Amanda and Natalie took me to lunch today as if I wasn't already spoiled enough! I love my friends!

"The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, but the rich have many friends" Proverbs 14:20

I am so rich!
