Spent time tonight with friends I don't get to see often. These girls are like family to me. It's so fun because we always pick right up where we left off. It is wonderful to have people like that in my life. Our time is so limited I often feel slighted on the things I would tell them if I had more time...so I think I'll just write it down:
Brooke and Leslie,
Truly, you have been my closest friends for at least 15 years of my life. I cannot imagine not having you in my life.
Brooke, you are wise beyond your years and you always have been. You have always been a sound, logical voice in my life. I know your desire and passion in life is to love your God with all your strength, heart, and soul and that is something worthy of praise and I admire you for it. My prayer for you is that you see just how talented God has created you to be and that you know He has the best intentions for you.
Leslie, your thoughtful ways always amaze me. When I visit your home I leave wanting to be a better wife and love my husband even more than I already do. The love you have for Bradley is so evident and contagious. You are so talented in so many small ways and your talents always have a way of making the people in your life feel so special and important. I pray that Bradley and you continue to see the wonderful things God has in store for you as a family.
