We've maintained an insanely close bond through cross country moves, long separations, both our military careers & our husband's military careers (and all the PCSing that entails...), babies, love, and heartaches. We've been there through it all for each other conquering any time, distance, or space.
Being isolated on an island, I can't tell you the blessing it is to be just a hop skip and a jump away from family. Having someone who knows me to the core to laugh with, cry with, and share all life's struggles with is amazingly therapeutic! All I can say is God sure does know what he's doing! While my family couldn't pick up and follow me when I needed it... God put me across a continent, and across an ocean with someone just as special!

To all my other amazing friends- Wishing so much you could be here with me too! I appreciate deeply all your love and support over the years. My life has been so blessed by so many. If I had the energy left in me, I'd write an ode to you all! ;)
Point is: There's something special about the friends you call family- because you choose to call them family. I challenge everyone to take the time today to tell a close friend how meaningful they are in your life! It may just make their day to know they are treasured.
