30 Days of Thankfulness :: Day 4 :: Besties
Man was life hard when I had a 25 month old and a brand spankin' new baby. It was really hard for probably an entire year. But now that we've gotten past the baby stage, I am so happy that God gave us these two the distance apart that he did. They are so close. They look out for each other, they entertain each other, they beat up on each other. They scream and hit and tattle on each other, yet they share such a sweet love that can only exist between best friends. It is one of my greatest hopes that they remain close and always love each other like they do now.
I never imagined in a million years that I'd grow up and become a parent without my childhood best friend beside me. Thankfully, God has given me some pretty amazing friends who have filled that void. Not a replacement, but some pretty super special girls who I don't know if I would have made it this far through motherhood without. I know for a fact I wouldn't have left the house that first year of Jenny Kate's life without a couple of them....whom I miss dearly!
Some best friends we get to grow up with, some we lose way too early, some move away and we can see monthly...or yearly...and it's like they never left, and some we see (thank goodness!) several times a week. They're all different. They're all special. I love 'em and I'm so, so thankful for besties!!
