Sometimes, there are certain events in my life that make me feel like this...
...one of those events is whenever I get to talk to my very best friend, MamaSteph. I love when the stars and planets align and we have the opportunity to talk...on the phone....and hear each others voices. Oh I love her dearly. I know I'm blessed by my Heavenly Father just because of certain people that he's placed in my life. She is one of those tender mercies in my life. I crave our phone calls because for a moment, the many miles between us disappear and it seems like no time at all has come between us. In a couple months, it'll mark 8 years since we last saw each other, in person. What I would give just to have an hour in person and laugh like we always do.
I wish I could put my finger on the one thing that makes her friendship so beautiful and priceless. She has a heart of gold and I never feel judged by the many things I have told her over the years. She listens to me ramble and occasionally throw in a joke or two. I know I am blessed to have her in my life.
If there's anything I could take away from our friendship, it is the hope that I can be a friend to others as she has been to me.
