Day 2 of being Thankful

Day 2: Thankful for my friends

I have been blessed over the years with lasting friendships.  Let me tell you a bit about a couple of them. 

My best friend, Jessica, and I met in high school and worked at Wal Mart together.  We had a lot of fun adventures through the years and then we had about 9ish years when we didn't talk.  Not upset with each other or anything, our lives had just taken us in different directions.  Once we started talking again, right before the birth of my daughter and her youngest son, we picked right up where we left off.  Now, we text everyday.  She lives on the other side of the country, but that doesn't mean we aren't close.

My other best friend, Jennifer, and I met in a chat room.  Her then boyfriend and I had gone to high school together.  Their relationship didn't last, but our friendship did.  We had some good times and discovered our redneck girl sides together.  Through lots of laughs and lots of tears, we shared our lives.  She was with me when I married in 1999, and came when my daughter was born in 2008.  John and I were at her wedding to the love of her life in 2007.   She passed away in August of 2011, and I miss her terribly.  I know in a sense she is always with me.

These are just 2 of the phenomenal friendships that I have...there's not enough room to list them all and what all they mean to me.  I hope they know that I treasure the times we have spent and will spend together. 

That's the end of day 2.
