My Best Friend

Okay, I've tried, like, three or four times to start this post, but nothing I'm writing is conveying what I really want to say. I'm just so happy that my best girlfriend in the whole ding dang world, Kat, has started her own blog! I knew it was just a matter of time. She was having too much fun seeing me have too much fun.

Kat and I have been friends for over a decade. We went to the same church and when she and her husband started coming to the same small group we were in, I immediately wanted to be closer to her. We were the youngest couples in our group, so we sort of hung out just because we were the only ones not wearing dentures.

Pretty soon it became evident to both of us that we were meant to be friends. We just enjoyed being together, and that hasn't diminished over the course of years, babies, heartaches, losses, joys, canine companions, mothers, mothers-in-law, and homeschooling. Not to mention that our guys enjoy being around each other, too.

I don't know why she loves me. I'm such a goober it's a wonder I have any friends. I know that I love her because she lets me vent when I need to, but she also tells me like it is when she needs to. Her home is beautiful, not just because of her taste, but because she fills it with love for her family as well as the Lord. And the most important reason I love her so much is this: she laughs at my jokes.

There is so much more I could say, but then it would get all mushy and I'm just not in a crying kind of mood today. So, suffice it to say that I love my Kat very much and I'm happy to see her in bloggyland.

So, my blogging friends, please hop on over to A Quiet Life and see my beautiful, bestest friend and her beautiful children.

Just so you know, Kat is no longer blogging...she still visits, but doesn't post. So if you click on her link you won't be able to find her. Her profile does show how beautiful she and her children are, though!
