When Friends are Like Family

This week has proven to me how lucky I am to have such great family & friends in my life. I know everyone thinks that their family & friends are the best, but I know that mine REALLY are. In the midst of missing Ryan incredibly and getting used to life on my own again, everyone has been so great to check in on me and keep me busy.

In particular, I had the best "Girls Day Out" with Robin today. We went down to Wilmington & spent all day shopping and just playing around. It was a much needed getaway for both of us. When we met over 3 years ago, she was my loud crazy neighbor in Virginia. (Sorry, Robin...you know it's true.) Little did I know, she and her husband Will (and of course their darling daughter Jackie Rose) would become our "family" away from Texas. We have definitely relied on each other during some tough times these past few years in the Marine Corps, and I can't imagine not having her right across town anymore! I'm going to have to figure out some way to keep them from moving this summer. Anyway, this entry is a big "Thank you" to all the amazing people in my life who really keep me going. You know who you are & I love you each dearly!!

I am so glad you had fun on Friday!! I have to admit, I was a little worried about you after we talked last week! You were just not yourself! (understandable) So your shopping trip reassures me! Please tell Robin thank you from us here in Texas, for taking care of you while you are so far away! I am so happy you have such a wonderful friend in Robin!

Will, Jackie Rose and I are truly blessed to have you and Ryan in our lives. You know that we consider you family! Life in the marine corps wouldn't be the same w/ out you. I would be more crazy than I already am. Your friendship has made me strive to be a stronger and better person! Thank YOU for your love and friendship. Thank YOU for showing me how important friendship and family really are! Thank YOU for helping me strengthen my relationship with God! Thank YOU for being so wonderful, caring, and for being the number one bestest shopping buddy any chick could ever have! You know that I love ya girl! (aka Robin's personal Interior designer!)
