As Hubby told you, we celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary last week. Thank you for your sweet comments and emails. It seems only a few months ago when the kids threw us a party for our 25th. We spent the day together and went to the movie Momma Mia! We both loved it. You certainly leave with a smile on your face. Just my kind of movie, for sure.
The girls and I met my oldest best friends and their moms in the hill country for a girl’s weekend. Just my kind of weekend, too!!!
We stayed on the lake. It was like heaven. If I could wake up to the sun rising over the lake every morning instead of an alarm I think I’d become a morning person. Well, maybe?
The friends we met were my daughter’s best friends in high school. They were and are great accountability partners for one another. Each of them are incredible Christians. They are true friends and speak the truth in love.
My daughters’ sophomore year she was seeing a guy who wasn’t – well, she just didn’t need to be seeing him. Of course my daughter wasn’t listening to her parents. We were oddballs and didn’t have a clue what she was going through. She was so wrapped up in this situation she couldn’t see straight.
Her best friends finally intervened and spoke the truth to her. Did it hurt? Yes. Did it almost cost them their relationship? Yes. Was it awkward and strained? Yes.
During that time, those girls earned my total respect. They were TRUE friends. (read this weeks devotional) They truly cared for my daughter. I admired their boldness and was on my knees praying God would open my daughters eyes and that God would heal their relationships eventually. Prayers were answered.
These are special friends. The three moms have been there for each other. Our daughters are scattered all over Texas at the moment. Our prayer is they will be close in distance again one day soon.
This weekend we all went to see Momma Mia! I had to see it again! We, moms, loved it. We are the singing and dancing kind of gals. Our girls were howling with laughter. They thought it was so corny it was hilarious.
There would have been no better movie for three moms to take their daughters to. You’ll see why if you go see it . . .
I’m reminded today of the Michael W. Smith song Friends.
Chorus: And friends are friends forever, if the Lords the Lord of them.
What a blessing to have a true friend! It’s amazing.
