Best Friends Forever


"Give...love to one, friendship to many, and good will to all."
I saw this written on a wall of the Detroit airport just this past weekend while walking the halls waiting for my flight. Don't know who came up with it, but it sure is a nice thought. Simple, yet profound.

This made me think of those whom I call "Friend" and how much of an impact a person can make on my life. My best friend, Deb, for instance...we met 15 years ago at Taylor University Ft. Wayne. Don't really remember how we became friends, but it probably had something to do with trying to survive Dr. Wes' class on the Old Testament. Since then, we've had the best of times together and some pretty tough ones too. Praise God we made it through them and remain friends...I don't know what I would do without her in my life.

I can truly say she's one who knows everything about me and loves me anyway...she's the best! She gets my humor...she knows my moods and lets me get away with them or tells me to get over it with all the class a best friend can have...she lets me be me. Who could have a better BFF?

I do believe that if we've made it through all that's happened in the last 15 years and are still friends, we'll be good to go for the next 50 with no problems! Love ya, Girl!

Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
