so last night i got to meet up with a group of girlfriends from my old bible study! i have known these girls since i first moved to charlotte 4 and a half years ago and we quickly became close friends. we used to meet regularly to do a bible study, fellowship and just "do life" together. these girls have been with me through some of the most difficult times of my life and have shared in so many joys and sorrows with me. we have laughed together and we have cried together. we have agreed and disagreed. we have ate together and exercised together (more eating though!). we have gone through infertility and we have witnessed miracle births and adoptions. we've been through illness and celebrated health. we have "waited" together. we have chartered the unknown together. but most importantly, we have grown in our relationship with God together.

over the past 6 months, life has seemed to take us in different directions making it quite a challenge to regularly meet each week, but by the grace of God when i emailed everyone last week about getting together, 8 out of 10 of us made it out last night! we had a great time catching up at one of our regular spots, the cheesecake factory ::

melanie, laura, allie, jennifer, maria, dawn, jeanette, tracy and renae...i am SO THANKFUL to have each one of you as a lifelong friend that i know i can turn to during the good times and the bad. love you all!!!

being a mom can be lonely. just because you have your kids to keep you company all day long, doesn't mean you don't have times of loneliness or long for an adult conversation. it is hard being a mom or maybe you want to be a mom so badly and aren't right is hard to go through alone and i encourage you to get plugged into a small group at a local church or join a MOPS group (mothers of preschoolers). trust me, you will be welcomed and you will most likely find some new close friends! if you want more information on how to get involved with a small group or on MOPS, feel free to contact me!

Last night was a blast. I have missed everything you described in your beautiful post. While it makes me sad that season is over, I'm thankful for all of the blessings and growth we had together as a group and I know that the Lord placed us in each others lives for a reason. Love you!!!

ok, now, take a minute, hop over to my blog and join in on the 30 days challenge. it's not too late!!!
