If as you travel this life you find a friend as special as mine….YOU ARE BLESSED!  I found my sweet friend over 10 years ago.  I never saw it coming!  I was simply surrendering to the call that my husband felt lead to follow from God into ministry.  We left behind family, friends and all of life as we knew it to attend seminary eight hours away.  I wasn’t too worried about making friends, but I had no idea that I would find the one that would stick closer than a brother.  I have never had a cross word with this girl and I can’t think of why I would.  She’s precious.  She makes me a better me.  I love you Marilyn.  I wish I was there closer so we could do some real celebrating!  I miss you!  I hope you have a fantastic big 40!  You deserve it!

Here’s a few things about my special best friend!
