I have a couple of GOOD FRIENDS that I know I can trust with my life and they will always be there for me. The first friend that comes to mind is my friend; Linda, we have been friends since we were in junior high school in OHIO. After graduating from High School. Our lives did take some turns as she married and moved to Hawaii with her husband who was in the service. I left for college. About, 4 years later and we ended up returning to our home towns. Then, we both moved to Colorado and have been able to support each other for the next 30 years. I don't know what I would do without her. She knows me better than I know myself at times. I feel truly blessed. emoticon

Well, I have a good friend who I have known since I was pregnant with my last child, 25 years ago. While our DH's were in the Army and we were stationed on the same post (two duty stations in a row), she was there for me for everything and I was there for her for everything. We babysat each others kids, did chores for one another, our children played together (she had 2 boys & a girl~I had 2 girls & a boy) and our families did a lot of activities together. But then my DH retired from the Army and we moved one direction, they retired and moved another direction. Now there are 3000 miles between us. But we keep in close contact via phone, e-mail & letters. And every Spring she flies out here and spends a full month with us. It's not nearly as nice as it was when we lived only a few minute drive from one another, but we still love each other & keep in as close of contact as we can. She understands me better then 98% of my family does. And I am ditto with her. Right now the only thing I do not like about our relationship is all the miles between us. I guess you can tell that I miss her.

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

Actually I can't think of anyone except some friends in AZ and a couple about 8-9 hrs. north of us. I didn't have any help when I was recently down in a recliner for over a month. I have my SP friends though.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

I have a friend that I first met in high school. She is also a devout Christian. I bet you can guess when she was born since her name is Noel.

I have several. When the chips were down my life was hell, but I was so blessed in my friends. I learned how very lucky and what true friends I had.
