Day Sixteen.

that's today ... day sixteen of being home from vacation.
i have been living the life, but i have also been missing my friends a bit. not terribly - and believe me, somedays my yearning for them is painful. i just miss waking up, their warm, slumbering bods next to me, with anticipation of the joy that was to come of our day together. i miss our cups of gritty coffee in the morning & our salads for lunch & our wine for dinner & our cigarettes at midnight ... our laughs and jokes and the way we got on each others nerves.

us ... 5 years ago when we first met

i have spent the last two weeks basking in the goodness of my experiences with them. being grateful for them. shaking my head at our folly. yes, wishing i were closer to them, then shrugging my shoulders and knowing that things are the way they are so that we may all become.

us ... 17 days ago.

i have a few friends who are the most dear to my heart. these girls are God given, no body compares to them. i have lots of friends ... but these four are part of me. their words and laughter and souls are intertwined in my person ... their hand and foot prints impressed all throughout my life story. they are good and gracious and pretty and hilarious and funky and different and i will know & love them forever. they make & remind me of who i am.

As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul .... Then Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him.

So true. Where would we be without our friends? I know there would be lots less smiles and laughs in my life if it weren't for friends (especially you).

I like that pic of us. We have fun.
