BFFs—Celebrating Friendship

Who is your BFF?BFF4

Alison and Val in Carolina Reckoning have this kind of friendship. A friendship with lots of backstory.

BFF3Sometimes there are friends for the season of the road we travel. Other friends are like a bright thread of hope and love that wend through all our days.

I have been so richly blessed with friends to share life’s journey. Here’s to you—you know who you are.BFF5

BFF8I never think of Star Wars or the NC State Fair without remembering my BFF in high school.

I will never forget being with my mommy friends at a MOPS meeting when the first plane hit the World’s Trade Center on 9/11 and the phones starting ringing. And our world changed forever.BFF7

I’ll never forget the friendships of my youth. Or as Anne of Green Gables puts it, “There is no bond more lasting than that formed by the mutual confidences of that magic time when youth is slipping from the sheath of childhood and beginning to wonder what lies for it beyond those misty hills that bound the golden road.”

BFF6A friend who has stuck by my side through difficult pregnancies, a miscarriage and the adventure of raising daughters.

Friends who have come into my life because of the writing journey and how blessed I am for it.

Thank you all for being my friend. You continue to enrich my life.BFF10

I’d love to hear about your own BFFs and what that friendship has meant to you.

BFF2Remember—It takes a long time to grow old friends.

And my prayer for you—May your house always be too small to hold all of your friends.

One thought on “BFFs—Celebrating Friendship

  1. Beautifully written, Lisa. I’ve been blessed with several incredible Christian BFFs who have stood with me through the fear and heartache of unemployment, the loss of our income, and the loss of our house. When we had to move halfway across the state to live with a relative for 18 months, these wonderful women called regularly, sent encouraging notes, and sometimes sent small gifts to let me know that although I was absent from them, I was still beloved and not forgotten.
