besties in frame

So, as I look at this picture of two of the worlds most darling best friends, I reflect upon my own friendships and I how much I value my "besties".

Today I met my four best girlfriends for "lunch". We met at our fav. little restaurant that has the most charming atmosphere with the yummiest food around town. We met at 11a.m. and didn't walk out of the restaurant until 3:45 p.m. We giggled, caught up on each other's lives, shared prayer requests, cried a tad (we're such saps), gossiped a little (ok, maybe a lot, but not at the expense to hurt anyone :), shared sangria and reminisced about the funny things we did growing up.

I love these girls like sisters and I am so incredibly blessed by their friendship. We have watched each other get married (I am still waiting on that honor), have children, get hired and sometimes fired from jobs, shared recipes, drank "mama drinks", vacationed together, called each other at midnight to laugh or cry and have been each other's rock at one time or another.

I am feeling extremely grateful today for my many friendships, but especially for my besties!

My only hope is that Paige can share the same joy with her friends as I have with mine.

Life is not complete unless you have good friends to share it with!

Sounds like a wonderful day with friends. I had dinner with friends the other night and it was so much fun catching up with one another.

I love this post so much Missy, but have to admit it's the photo and quote that drew me in, both just couldn't be more perfect! Being an airforce brat, I really don't have friendships that go past by high school years, and even very very few at that, so I think it's really neat that people (including my kids too) will have friendships that go back to the first times they can remember.
