This past week we were refreshed with the fellowship of our dear college friends. You know that saying, "you don't know a good thing till it's gone"? Well...that's this group for us. We knew we all meshed well and loved to spend time together but it wasn't until we all moved and went our separate ways that we missed each other dearly and realized that not everybody understands or "gets" you the way your close friends do. When we tried to find friends after college it was just hard, we would leave many social gatherings feeling like we failed at convincing people to be our friends. I mean seriously, we would say to each other, "I mean were cool, right?"
You just can't replace those friends you make during your youthful years. Those are the years that your vulnerable, growing in your faith, maturing through hardships and have endless amounts of undistracted time to have fun and do absolutely nothing together.
So now that we're far apart from one another we cherish the times we do spend together, this summer being one of those special times we were all able to meet up.
Here are some pictures from the good ol' days.
And here we are now all grown up with our precious children. God is good!
