last time we were all together september 2005

Today. minus one. July 19th, 2008

We had a great time in pdx today with some friends from the not so distant past! It had been a long time since we were together with husbands and kids, because we usually reserved our time just to be together as girls! We were missing a valuable asset, named debbie who was in india at the time! (Hi deb, we missed u)

Our friends Jim and Krista were in the country with their little one Joah! How adorable is he! I was a little disappointed though, I need his thighs to be a lot bigger for me to love on him. ha ha. we all agreed that no one's thighs were ever going to be as big as my little noah's! (when noah was 4 months he was in 12 month pants just to fit his booty in)

I am so grateful that throughout the past almost 18 years that we have known each other we have all been friends. My hope is that when we are sixty, that even distance and changes in our lives cannot break that girlfriend bond. Our lives are different than they used to be. Three of us do not live in the same place anymore. three remain. we are families. we are missionaries. we are cultural tasters (we envy krista's coffee and chocolate). we are believers. we are strong women. we are time tested. we are friends who molded and shaped the women we are today.
ps - krista i did not post a pix of u in your flashdance ensemble!!! although maybe someday when u least expect it, i will. he he.
