Best Friends

Just spent a lovely weekend with my very best friend, Sherry!  We've known each other since we were both 13 years old; for those curious about such things, it will be 40 years next spring!!  And I truly thank God for the day He brought her into my life!  We haven't always agreed on everything and frequently we are poles apart in our thinking, but there is a core, an underlying sense of peace, that has only strengthened as the years have passed.  We know all the good things about each other, as well as a whole lot of the bad, but somehow it never seems to matter because it isn't about pointing fingers or oneupmanship. It's about the gift of love.  We share a history, Sherry and I, which is especially nice because it allows us the privilege of knowing where we're coming from and what we've both been through to get where we are today.  As I see it, having a friend is wonderful.  Having a best friend is a gift from Heaven above.  To Sherry!

Taken during our last trip to one of our favorite shops, World Market, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee!  Sorry Sherry - I know I don't have permission to use this picture of you, but you'll just have to deal! It's one of my favorites and every time I see it, I'm reminded of all the fun we had that particular day!

I found this card on the Internet; it sums things up quite nicely about both of us!

A stem of Morning Glory!  These have the sweetest little purple flowers when they're blooming, but I like the fact the leaves are all shaped like hearts!

May God Bless! Jan
