Monday's Memory

Ah, college.

These 3 girls were my suitemates my first 2 years at Trevecca, and have become lifelong friends.

Our freshman year we looked like this...

And we were young, a bit naive, silly, serious, hopeful for our futures, and clueless about the life God had in store for us.

We had Thursday night suite nights, stayed up late watching old tv shows on VHS, skipped classes and chapel together occasionally just to reconnect and destress, and laughed, cried, sang and prayed...a LOT.

It broke my heart when Lindsay and Gwen elected other options for college our junior year. Bethany and I stayed close, but the fabulous foursome never got together during college again.

In 2007, we gathered again, for the first time since the end of our sophomore year.
Bethany's wedding was a joyful time for all 4 of us!
She's since had a baby (sweet Elijah)
And Gwen has come to visit me
And 2 or 3 of us have gathered elsewhere
And we've promised to get the 4 of us together again...soon.
Because Bethany and family will be going to the mission field in the next few years.
So time together is precious.

But every time we do get's as though we've never parted.

It is great to have really wonderful long time friends like that. You get together and the years just fall away.

Thanks for stopping by.

What a nice sentiment...

I have friends I had since the 1st grade and it never fails to move me when we're all together again in one room. Truly one of life's treasured moments.
