Precious Friendship

One of the things I cherish is spending time with friends. Especially when your friend happens to be a soul mate, who understands you, cares about what you're going through and offers hope and encouragement. She knows how to interpret your looks and moods and shares many a smile, laughs with you, and gives you a hug when you need it most. The talks of things deep or inconsequential, the comfortable moments of silence just savoring time we get to be together, the sitting on car bumpers after events as we wait for our parents to tell us we have to go - they're all memories that I will cherish for a lifetime.

Thank you, Miriam, for being such a friend. The little and big things you do have encouraged me so much as we walk through life's highs and lows together. I thank God for the gift He's given me in you.
"A friend loves at all times..." ~ Proverbs 17:17

Never take your friends for granted! Cherish them, think of ways to encourage them, and enjoy being together!

Friendship is a gift from God.

I am so thankful for my friend Kayla. She understands me so well, but we usually only see each other at church. It's kind of hard though, when your two best friends are twins.

Good pictures... I love everyday shots so much better than posed ones! (Except when that sibling catches you at a most unpictureish time! :)

A Godly "soul-mate" friendship is precious indeed...

You are so sweet, Anna!
I could not have asked for a better friend than you and I thank God for you everyday!

Friends are definitely wonderful, when the Lord brings like-minded ones into your path. I am so blessed to have you and Miriam!

Good friends are truly something special. Even if you do not see them very much, it seems like no time was lost when you see that friend again.

Thank you for your thoughts!
