So, between getting married at 19, moving far far away from where I grew up, and living a life pretty 'different' then what's 'normal', I don't really have many girlfriends.
I never realized how much a good girlfriend does for the soul until quite recently.
When I got married, it seemed like a lot of the friends that I did have sort of backed away. I think that they felt like they couldn't relate anymore, or maybe they just felt like it would be too hard to be friends with someone in such a different stage of life now
And that's understandable.
Although, I promise I'm still the girl who wants to stay up all night and chat with a friend :)
I was left wondering if I'll ever make good friends- I'm so young... its rare to find other couples that are married so young, you know? And not very often do you find another couple who desires to live the same sort of life we want to live. Also, Lee and I are travelers. You never know where we'll be the next year let alone the next month.
But guess what?
God heard me. He granted me a way to have so many beautiful friends-
I realize this may sound silly to some, but seriously, I can't even express how BLESSED I am because of all of you. I went from feeling sad about not really having many friends... to feeling so excited to know all of you. You guys are a HUGE part of my life. I'm so so thankful for all of you.
I really do love you all so much!
Three things I've learned:
one.) God really does care about the little things. like giving me a bunch of awesome girlfriends :)
two.) We all need girlyfriends
three.) My bloggy friends mean a whole lot to me
