Today I spent a lot of time thanking the Lord for giving me such wonderful ladies to call my best friends. All of us live all over the place, so seeing each other is a privilege now instead of being second nature like it used to be. My wedding day was the best day of my life for lots and lots of reasons, but one of my most favorites was having all eleven of the best friends I've ever had in one place at the same time. I'd get married over and over again just to make that happen again.
Mellywhack, Katiebug, Best Friend Not Bestie, P. Sawyer, Cait Cait, Court Bourt, Ellybeth, Michal, EmilieCarol, Eeedo, and Laur Laur are all very different and yet so similar. I don't know why the Lord chose to give me not one, but eleven little pieces of heaven on earth, but I'm so glad He did.
I'm thankful for them every single day, but today was a little different for some reason. I think it's because I miss them a whole lot, and I'd give anything to have them all cuddled up in our tiny loft, watching tv with me, laughing about all the hilarious things that happened to us in the last twelve hours (because let's face it, 95% of all our days are more unusual than the average person's days).
See, they even look wonderful, don't they? :)
