So this week was an incredible blessing to me as I had all three of my bride’s maids out to visit me. It was interesting…we went Thursday afternoon to the seamstress’ house and she had asked each of the girls for their phone number. Ann’s area code was 405, Crystal’s was 918 and April’s was 580…and of course me in Arkansas am at a 479 area code. It just served to highlight the physical distance between all of us. And yet we are SO close.
It’s like how my mom quotes Winston Churchill, “The urgent is seldom important and the important is seldom urgent.” Sometimes we get so caught up in the rush of every day that we can go for weeks without talking. And yet, when I puzzling something out, or am failing, the ones I turn to are my precious, important friendships who will BE THERE…even if it’s been awhile. We can come together again and pick right back up again. Pure love….pure acceptance. I am so blessed to have friends like these three…who pray me to the Father, who lift me, make me smile, make me cry, make me be real with myself, remind of who I truly am and who Christ is in me.
We had an absolute blast and I’m grateful that we were able to be together.
Even if it wasn’t long enough!
