Florida, Girlfriends, The Lord Jesus, & a sunburn! Ugh...

Had the best week, nearly ever!! I flew off to Fl. last Sat. for a week on the beach with my girlfriends. Just some time to rest and renew & boy did I. We moved from Florida 4 years this Sept. & until last week I really didn't think I missed it. I quickly realized, I do. I not only miss the white sandy beaches, 90 degree days, aqua marine water, but I realllly misss my friends.
I know God moved us here for a few reasons. I have seen our buisness blow up, I've seen God truly work in my family's lives, but theres somthing about girls who know your dirt, & still love you...The friends I have there are strong,so loving, very tan (lol) real women of God who were (& are) such a special part of my life. I came home on thursday & told hubbs to pack it all up!!( although I couldn't leave my friends here.......... with out a few weeks advanced notice... :)
I have found some awesome friends here too. Why, just last night I had a teriffic G.N.O. & feel truly blessed that God has placed them in my life!!
I have just realized that the saying about season's of friends in your life is so true, but it takes alot of time & dedication to grow "old friends". I truly hope you are growing some of your own...

Sounds like a wonderful time! I'm glad you had a chance to go visit and hang with friends. I'm trying to go to Portland this summer but our finances are not looking good. Please keep this in your prayers.
I Love and miss you girly.

I love my G.N.O. and a trip with the girls sounds even more awesome. I agree that it takes time to "make" old friends and it´s a special thing to cherish!

Hey girl!! I'm so glad you had a fun time and relaxed a little!! We have talked several times of moving to Florida and it may happen! We moved to Indy from Oklahoma while I was in high school and I still don't like it here. But I do love my girls, old and new!! xoxo
