on being known

On a crazy whim a friend emailed us ladies to see if everyone could meet up in Wisconsin and hang out.  It was ON! I spent just one night and morning with these ladies, but it was oh so refreshing.  We ate Mexican, drank tea and coffee, and stayed up way too late.  They are fabulous, they love Jesus, they make sacrifices to follow Him, and they go through really tough crap and are real about it.  Um, Awesome-ness. They are beautiful, encouraging, and challenge me to live more of what I believe.  They know me and accept me and refuse to let me get away with anything less than authenticity.  And that is what real friends do. Always.

And we laugh a lot....

I am so grateful for these ladies in my life.  Being known is a gift that I do not take for granted. I have amazing girlfriends and I don't deserve them but I thank God He has blessed me to walk with them as our paths cross, wind, and intersect. Love you and don't forget to shake your beads ladies,

I miss you so dang much! Even more now that you are so close, but so far away :) I'm glad you got to have some girl time with your dear ones! Phone date soon?
Love you!
