I know I've commented before about how much I love my friends, but here I go again. I actually get overwhelmed thinking about my wonderful friends. I didn't always have these relationships. In fact, I had a very hard time at different points in my life with girlfriends. I won't spill my guts over this post, but I think that any of the more difficult relationships I had just made me appreciate the wonderful friends I have now. So I'm very thankful. And don't get me wrong, I have had wonderful friends all along the way.
This Easter my in-laws and my parents were out of town! David and I have complained with a smile every holiday that we just run from house to house because we are blessed enough to live in the same town as both of our parents. This Easter was the first time I haven't been with my parents and the first in my recent past that I haven't seen his family too. I woke up pretty sad Sunday morning actually. One of my favorite people, my brother-in-law, Joe moved to New York a few weeks ago so his parents were visiting him. And my mom is struggling to find time to spend with her brother who doesn't have much of it left, time. So my mom and dad were spending Easter with my uncle in Florida.
So we made it up along the way. One of my best friends, Megan, had us, Sister #1 and her family, and Sister #4 and her boyfriend all over for a Friend Easter. I have to say, although I missed our families, it was one of my favorite Easters ever. I looked around the table at my friend and her beautiful family and members of my family and the lines between who was blood and who was friend were completely blurred. And not just because I tear up all the time.
