Long time Friends

I moved a lot in my lifetime and have met A LOT of people over the years in many states/countries/churches/stages of life - i just know a lot of people.  There are very few friends over the years that I keep in contact with regularly and those friendships i cherish dearly. 

Thursday and Friday this week my dear friend from Boston came to visit me. I have known her since Kindergarten and she and I have kept in contact since then. I have lived overseas, gone to a far away college, taken missions trips, worked at camps, gotten married and moved away then moved closer and many other things and through it all she has put so much effort into staying my friend. 
It takes work to stay Good friends through life and moving so much - but I could not be more thankful that she has made the same commitment and we are reaping the benefits. 

She has a son a little older than my second and we were able to spend a good amount of time together those two days just being together and being mothers. Which is a relatively new phase for both of us. 

My heart was encouraged and lifted up! We took off right where we left off and that happens every time!!!!! I  consider her so challenging to me, both in my spiritual walk and my motherhood walk!  these kind of friends are hard to come by - and I cherish it dearly.

Sadly b/c I hate to take pictures, (but love having them) I don't have any of our time together. So I will upload one of us from a different time we were together. :)

over a year ago in Boston both of us preggers!!! :)

Reading about this made me think of Jane. You are right, in takes work on both parts to keep a friendship like this, but we are privileged to have these extra special people in our lives. I'm so glad you had a good time with Lydia! What a good friend she has been (to our whole family)!!!!
