Beach Buddies

Thirty years ago we moved to where we live now.

It is a couple of hours away from my family.

That was such a hard time for me.

And though we made that trip AT LEAST several times a month....

I needed a support group here.

I developed a friendship with some ladies at the school my kids attended.

We started going on beach trips once a year.

That turned into a once a month get together for meals.

We have shared births and deaths.

Divorces and marriages.

Happy times and sad times.  

We haved cooked each other meals.

And played *Florence Nightingale* during hospital visits.

We've given baby showers

And wedding showers

And we have prayed like crazy for each other's kids...

And grandkids.

My family will ALWAYS be the most important people in my life.

But these ladies........

They mean the world to me too.

I'm glad I am doing life with them.
