Best Friends and Sunshine....

So, Friday we got the chance to go up to Jupiter Farms on Friday. I have to say I was soo looking forward to it. I haven't seen my best friend in just about a year. She only lives about 45 minutes away, but schedules and kids sometimes don't work out.

I was feeling excited and not thinking about the negativity that I had been dealing with. The pup was looking forward to swimming and running on Aunt Tam's land.....

We pulled up to the house and there she was, my buddy so happy to see us. I didn't even know what to do with myself. One hug and all was right with the world again. We talk on the phone 5-6 times a week? We always have something to say to each other. Sometimes it doesn't even require words. I love that I have a friend like that. I love that she loves my love. Her and Trink get along so well. We had so much fun with the kids and dogs. We just got a chance to relax and forget about the world for a while. A day just to reconnect with each other and smile.

Sure, it stormed just as we were leaving. But it couldn't put a damper on the laughter or the joy we got from seeing each other. Yea traffic was a killer on the way home. But, I had this little ball of sunshine inside that kept away all that icky stuff. It's amazing to me how that happens.

I love my girls so much. I am a lucky woman.

My Trink was off for the whole week and today she went back to work. I miss her already. I miss my Tam too..... I think it's time to just make an effort to get up there once a month ya know? We need that. WE really do. I don't want to miss any more Ash N Jess time either. They are gettin so big!

So, what you should take from this story is this, cherish your friends and the joy they bring to your life. It doesn't matter if you see them once a year or everyday. Tell them you love them and how much they mean to your life.

I know my life is so enriched by this lifelong friendship. Thanks..... I don't know what i'd do without Trink and you!
