My Sister, My Friend
This cutie pie in the middle is my dear friend Amy, sister of my heart. She and her family became special friends to us four years ago when they visited our church.
They are from Texas and were in our area (about an hour away actually) because her husband was starting his residency at a major hospital. Being a long way from home and new to the area, they were looking for churches and found ours and we hit it off right away.
We spent holidays, and birthdays together. We got together to visit and to shop and to have lunch and tea. We never run out of things to talk about.
We've shared hard times, and loss together, too.
Emma did some nannying for them and is very close to them as well.
Last night Tony graduated from Residency. Today Amy had a big chunk of time while Tony worked his last shift at the hospital. Emma and I drove to spend the afternoon and into the evening with her.
It was the best time, and I'm going to miss her so very much. God is so good to give our families each other. What a gift this friend is to me.
I'm so thankful for her.
