So excited! We had the best time today. Kerrie visited for lunch & some long, overdue girl talk.

From an article I recently read I was reminded that no matter what life brings our way, we know ones who we can always count on.

Whatever storms we may weather these girlfriends are already in the midst moving in a mighty way to ensure that whoever is with the storm is prayed up, protected, loved & cared for.

It's been a long, quiet reflective time for all of us.

We laugh together. We cry together. We hurt together. We rejoice together. We encourage & lift up one another. We don't have a pact. We just try to be there for one another. Simply put...that's what girlfriends do.

We are strong, and this unbreakable strength that we possess as girlfriends is what helps us to simply survive. 

Enjoying a wonderful night with all the girlfriends.

"Perhaps our last time...

...to Clio, Alabama", said my hubby. The area where Glenn's mother grew up.

Today we gathered to offer up our love to family members of one of Glenn's cousins who passed away. Several members of Glenn's mom's family...English Family...were there alongside us. Glenn's cousin was older than him, and we hadn't seen her or her family in several years.

Before arriving to the graveside services Glenn & I rode down a road that was so familiar to us many, many years ago. The road was a dirt road. One that would probably be a lot of fun on after a really good rain. Of course, one might get stuck along the way.

(lots of memories of riding down this road)

Riding down this road & reminiscing about our trips to the "Country House" brought back very special times & lots of memories that were made with aunts, uncles, cousins. Family.

Graveside services were being held at Sykes Creek Baptist Church.

 

A sweet simple service. Prayers & love to the family.

These strutters fly over my house most mornings & evenings from the nearby lake.
