Today I am thankful for...

Reconnected friendships!

I called an "old" friend of mine today out of the blue.  It's been months since we had spoken, she's been on my mind so I decided to give it a try.  I am SO glad I did!  Diane & I have been friends for about 11 years now, our kids are about the same ages & we hit it off pretty quickly & became fast friends.  Diane probably knows me better than anyone, other than my DH (& probably my sis & mom).  Even though we haven't chatted in a while (we do both have lives ya know) it felt just like yesterday that we had been together.  Yep, we have one of those "pick up where we left off" friendships, isn't that the best kind?!  We chatted & caught up on the phone for almost 2 hours (yeah, I know, that would be pure torture for you Brandi), then I headed out & went & hung out with her at her house for another 3 hours or so.  Man I've missed her.  I haven't laughed that hard or that long since the retreat in October!  Not only did we laugh together, we had some serious talks & even shared a few tears.  Diane & I have been through a lot together, I really think we've seen each other through some of our lowest times, but also some of the highest too.  We have an incredible friendship & a strong bond.  I absolutely love & adore her.  I love that we can totally 100% be ourselves, we don't have to hold anything back.  There is no fear of judgement, just unconditional love, respect, & friendship.  I will forever be thankful for her, she is such a huge blessing in my life.  She has really helped me become who I am today & for that, I will always be grateful.

So tonight, I am so thankful that I picked up the phone (that she picked up on her end lol) & we were able to reconnect!  Thanks for a great evening Diane, you made my day!
