“Best friends forever, right there. Battling all kinds of storms the world has to throw at us.”
– Sara Canada

When I got back from Hawaii,
I reintegrated back into the real world and realized something;
My life is kind of crazy.
And I do a lot.

And I was tired.

Suddenly I wanted people to lean on,
And cling to,
And be needy with.
Because school was hard.
And work was different.
And for the second time in three short months, my entire life had changed.

Years and years of being content fighting my own battles and leaning primarily on Jesus;
(Being a bit jaded at times, and being a horrible friend because I didn’t understand why other people couldn’t just ‘Buck up, give it to Jesus, and move on.’ like I could.)
And I didn’t want to do it anymore.

But for the first time in four years;
I wasn’t constantly surrounded by my besties.

I didn’t work with any of them.
I didn’t live with any of them.
I spent 10-14 hours a day in my office;
Working and schooling.
By my lonesome.

It was a terrible time to be needy!

During this time, I realized JUST HOW AMAZING my friends are.
They were there for me everyday,
Even with things going on in their own lives.
Listening to me whine and complain and stress about the same things over and over again.

Constantly offering me:

  • Adventures
  • Lazy days
  • Wine nights
  • Prayers
  • Jokes
  • Tacos
  • Puppy dog cuddles
  • Craft times
  • Cookie butter
  • Margaritas
  • Rain dances
  • Baby snuggles
  • Crowbars

Literally anything I could ever want.

I’ve never had this many amazing friends in my life, all at the same time.

I don’t like to say,
‘I couldn’t have done it without them.’
Because I am a strong, independent woman.
And I probably could I have, if I absolutely had to.
But it would have been incredibly difficult.
And I wouldn’t ever want to.

I love these amazing ladies with all my heart.

The last six months would have been completely miserable without them;
That’s for dang sure.
