Six years of long distance friendship, a few of those years almost exclusively letters... I feel as though this precious friendship has grown me and encouraged me in more ways than I can count.
For my birthday this year, my sweet husband surprised me with a trip to Indiana to see my beloved friend with whom I've been corresponding for so long, and longing to see her and give her a huge hug for all the love she's shown. The four days we spent together were a respite, a blessing, and even more encouragement than anything I could've hoped for. The Lord has blessed me with good people; people that long for Him in this world. This beautiful family being some of them, taking up a portion of my heart.
