When Friends Move On...

Hey Kanakuk Friends,
Oh, the word "friend" is so very dear and a word that bring tears to my eyes this week. Have you ever had a dear, dear friend move away? I realize I am 29 years old (yep, I'm 29...holler!) and I feel like I am in 6th grade and losing one of my bestest friends. At 29, I realize that friends are going to move and life and my little bubble of a world will change. I realize it but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

So today, I will call Jane to hang out or walk or something to simply be around her before she leaves on Friday morning. We have had so many memories and she is a woman I want to each day be more like. Here are some of my favorite memories:
1. Kelly Clarkson...no need to type more.
2. Dressing in "costumes" for a midnight movie
3. Our love for crafts...you are actually good at them, me...I need to keep learning.
4. Our talking...I mean no one else finishes my sentences and talks as fast with me.
5. Wicked...we must go again if it comes to Chicago! Sweet Memories! It's at 2 pm...AHHHH!!!
6. Musicals in general...love you Margo!
7. The Cottage...bathroom buddy!

Okay, so I could keep going through #500...but I shall stop. Kanakuk girls, I pray you have great friends. Friends that challenge you, encourage you, speak truth to you, and love you. I have been blessed with just that for many years and I know Jane and I will continue, we'll just have to use our night time free minutes now.

If you have great Godly friends...then PTL (Praise the Lord!)...if you don't, be praying that the Lord would lead great friends into your world.

Be awesome, love Jesus & hears to you Jane,

I love you so much Ashley! Thanks for the shout out on your blog. You are such a dear friend! I can't wait to see how our friendship continues and changes (in good ways) even as I move away. :)
