We are still in Shreveport. I enjoyed getting to see Jacob and Becca compete at the tournament. I think they both did great! Jacob is a natural and Becca is finally coming out of her shell, and is gonna be good competition! They did a duo and it was awesome.
I am thankful today for my friends. I have had many friends come and go through my life. And for each one I am thankful. I am especially thankful for my close group of girlfriends from elementary school. We were close all the way through high school. We are still close, but some not as close with each other. Life changes people. But I am thankful for every slumber party, and staying up late talking about boys. I am thankful for our club house, our journals and us growing up together. We shaped each other's lives and personalities, for the better I say. It is hard to find friends like that. We knew everything about each other. Even which buttons to push to make each other mad. Each one I them will always be close to my heart and I pray for them every night. I hope they know just how special they are to me.
As life changes us, and we grow up, we all make new friends. I love them as well. We have a special bond as we all have kids growing up together. Some of my new friends and I are also separated by miles but they are close to my heart as well. I know that if I needed them, they are there. I have moved too many times in the last 10 years. Each place I go, I make new friends, but I am only there for a few years, and have to leave. I hate it. I love following my husband and supporting him, but I hate leaving my friends. Some friendships stick through it, and others fade away. But again, I am thankful for each one and the role they had in my life.
