It is 2am and I am sitting here waiting for my hubby to return home from a week long business trip in Vegas, so I thought that I would do a post on something that I have thought a lot about over this past week.
Friends. I have had the privledge of having some of the most wonderful friends in my life. As I think back to my high school days and my best friend Brook, I think that she is the one that really started my road of great friendships. I am so grateful for all of the people that have been my friend, whether it was in high school or my friend now. I will forever love and be grateful that you were/are a part of my life. The only thing that saddens me when it comes to friends is when the friendship grows apart. I hate that! Why can't friendships always remain the same and constant in my life. Ever since we moved to this city five years ago, I have made some of the most amazing friendships. These women have helped me through some tough times and been there for some great, funny times. Some of you I met through visiting teaching and my ward or through playing a crazy game of Bunko! Each of you have touched me in some way. To those friends that I am not still in contact with, please know that I still love you and I miss our friendship. I really did learn something from each of you and just want to say thank you...thank you for being my friend. Due to the fact that I am not perfect...I know that at times I am not the easiest person to get along with, this is something that I am working on constantly. I wish that I could contact you all personally to tell you how much I love you. So if you are reading this now and have ever considered me a friend, please know that this was written for you and that you are loved! Thanks for helping to make me the person that I am today.

I went through all my pictures to try and find some of my favorite pictures of friends that I have had through the years. Please forgive me if there is not one of you, that doesn't mean that you were not important to just means that I was slothful about taking pictures at that time in my life!

Jenny, darling post!! I am so grateful for our friendship and I know at times we get busy with life and kids and all the crazy stuff, but I want you to know that you are a very dear frined to me. You have helped me through some crazy times and have always been there for me. I appreciate you and love you so much, thank you for our fun times and just for being you. You're the best!

Can't wait to go for Sushi, hoping that I can taste the dang stuff with this massive cold I have. Starting antibiotics today though, so we should be good. Love your guts.

There are certain people that come into our lives and make us better just because they are there, you are one of those people.
thanks from the bottom of my over flowing heart
