Starting L-R Laura lei, Cherie, Amber, Tiffany, Samantha, Cali, Celeste, Me, Shane Lybbert ??, Chrissy Waller, Matt Hardy, Keri Lybbert and Alisha Waller. Those were the good old days. I love this picture and I love all of the people in the picture.
I was talking to Laura a couple of months ago on the phone and she said something about how she thinks maybe there are only so many "soul mates" out there for you...only so many GREAT friends...and that for her in her life she already has met them all. I'll have to say I agree with her. I always make new "friends" but it will never be like it is with the friends I already have. How can anyone even compare to friends I've had my WHOLE life that know everything about me, and love me anyways. I always hear about people growing up, and all of the problems they had with cattiness...and girls that would be their friend one day and not the next. I never felt that. Through thick and thin my girls were there by my side. So that's that...this book, talks about the sacred bond between friends. I feel lucky to read the book and TOTALLY get what they are saying. I will say that there are a couple of friends that I had that I have lost contact with. Most of the ones that aren't Mormon. It isn't because they aren't mormon though...just because my parents are friends with theirs. So I can't ask my mom..."hey what is going on with so and so". It makes me sad. I miss them sometimes. Maybe I will see them at the 10 year reunion and get their info...and maybe then I will be better about staying in touch. Anyways...I love my girls...
Why is it we don't all live in a cul-de-sac together???
I am leaving to the JONES family reunion in BEND OREGON (one of my favorite places in the world). I will be back on sunday.
