When I was going to college, I moved out to an apartment with a few girls. I was so excited to finally be out on my own and take on responsibility of rent, food and so on. It was a scary, but yet a liberating feeling to be out on my own. I quickly made friends with the girls that were now my room-mates. One girl particularly was a favorite of mine, we actually acted like sisters from the very beginning. As time went on, I decided (since I never had any sisters) to come up with a plan. If I hooked my roommate and my brother up, then if that really worked...they'd be married, and I could have my best friend as my sister-in-law forever! And believe it or not, it worked!
So today this same sister-in-law flew in town to visit and that is what we did today, visited, went shopping and had lunch. I have really missed her, I love being around her, all we do is laugh and tease each other all the time.
That's the good news, the bad news is... I had to come right home and go to bed, and haven't been worth anything the rest of the evening. That is my life though, at least I got to go out some and for that I am grateful. There have many days that I couldn't have even done that, yes grateful is the right word.
Now I needed to take this poor worn out body and head to bed. Good night dear friends and thanks for your friendship too!

Friendship's Road

Friendship is a chain of gold,

Shaped in God's all~perfect mold;

Each link a smile, a laugh, a tear,

A grip of the hand, a word of cheer.

As steadfast as the ages roll, binding closer soul to soul;

No matter how far or heavy the load,

Sweet is the journey on Friendship's Road.

"Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends."

" Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget."
