I had lunch yesterday with an old friend that I havent seen in a while. She only lives about 1.5 hours away, but that's only since we've moved to Amarillo. It used to be 2.5 or so hours away. Funny how we get so busy with our lives and loose touch with people we love and care about. I have known my friend, Amy for about 13 years. I met her while working at TCFA before Bo & I married, and just after Adam died. I think that God put her in my life at that time because I needed just such a friend. She listened to me talk about Adam for many hours and was always there for me as a true friend. I was at such a weird point in my life, really so lost and just searching for something, anything to relieve my pain and give me fullfillment. Unfortunately, I was looking in all the wrong places, but you know, we all do dumb things in our lives. I think that Amy was somewhat of an anchor for me during that time. Funny, she is 15 years younger than me, but when I look back, she seemed to be the older, wiser one. ---Anyway, I enjoyed our lunch and was so glad to see her again.

Oh how the Lord blesses us with just these friends that encourage us along the way. True friends are a treasure, a treasure that we should hold close to our hearts.

We all get so busy with our own lives and comings and goings, when the scripture tells us to 'encourage one another daily as the time draws near'.

I have 2 friends such as that, I pray the same for you.

God Bless!
