A sweet friendship refreshes the soul. Proverbs 27 (The Message)

Today, I have to stop and write about how blessed I am. Robin has been my best friend since high school. And that is so rare--to have a friend last a lifetime.

This may surprise some of our teen readers, but even when you get to your forties, you'll still want a best friend.

Robin met me at the mall before I left town last week. I just got back from Texas. I taught at the North Texas Christian Writers' Conference this past weekend. One of my LEAST favorite things to do is to shop. Robin helped me pick out new eye shadow and dark-colored jeans. She kept bringing different jeans back to the dressing room for me. She didn't complain a bit. Isn't that sweet? And I've always been fascinated with girls/women who know how to put on their eye shadow the right way. I learned how to do the new thing with gold eye shadow.

Robin always tells me when it's time to decorate my house for each season. She told me to put out some fall leaves the other day. She loves color and she's fun!

She always, always, always wants the best for me.

This is a picture of us at my daughter's wedding. We were pregnant at the same time with our daughters way back when. :-)

In high school, I had no clue what a gift God gave me by letting us meet each other.

Today, I want to be sure I tell Him thank you. I tell Robin all the time.

Is there someone who's makes your life special?

Love you all,
