Fifty Two on Fridays {Week 13} Friend

The timing of this topic couldn't be better. Forgive me if I get a little transparent this week. You see, I've had this friend for nearly 25 years. Since we were little brats in the 3rd grade. I don't remember much about my childhood, selective memory perhaps, but I do remember a lot about her and the things we did. But 2 years ago our friendship took a break. A.sudden.halting.break. I'm not sure really quite what happened but I do know now, looking back, that the Lord was teaching me A LOT about myself. And of course, the hard way. We just reconnected about a month ago and her and her hubby, and girls came to stay with us this past weekend. I don't know why i'm surprised, but I am, at the fact that it didn't feel like it had been two years. It felt like I laughed with her just days ago. Her being with me feels like home, and it is. Only something so real, with love so deep, could make it through that. I feel like we've come through the fire with proof that we are gold. I've had silver in my life, lots of it. But Jena you are my gold and I love you! {she might kill me because I think I mentioned I'd put up one photo of her!}
What!? There were too many that were so "her" so I had to put them up. lol!

This touched me. I've had the halting friendship before and it's hard. SO so glad you are back to being golden friends!

There is seriously nothing better than childhood friends. It's so fun to grow up together and have all those memories together! Beautiful family!

What a beautiful story. So great that you were able to reconnect again. It was obviously true friendship if you can jump right back in like nothing changed! Beautiful shots!
