Today, at the end of a Wednesday, I wanted to talk a short walk down memory lane. Yesterday, I was able to spend 5 minutes with my lovely friend, Debbie, and I was instantly reminded of the blessed time I spent with her this summer. She has become such an instrumental part of my life. God brought us together at the perfect time--we both needed someone with whom we could share our hearts.
This summer we:
laughed super hard at Catalog Living.
discussed our favorite blogs.
reminded each other to enter the Pioneer Woman's giveaways.
talked about healthy living...and how we were both gaining weight on camp food.
gave girly advice.
recounted favorite HIMYM episodes.
shared stories and wisdom and frustrations of marriage.
shared how Jesus changed our lives.
listened to great tunes.
ordered "My Husband Rocks" shirts together.
talked about our moms' fights with breast cancer.
experienced the beautiful freedom in holding no secrets.
I'm only sorry I didn't become this close with her for those four years we lived "next door" to each other at Spring Arbor.
But living "across the street" at camp and sitting right next to each other for the majority of every day of this past summer made up for lost time.
I'm so thankful for you, Deborah. You are an inspiration to me and a friend I could never replace. Love you.
