Friends



Here is my fun buy for the big day of garage sale shopping. Now Joel is riding around in style for only $5.00! No more riding in luggage. The boy on the back is Joel's favorite friend Hayden.
Today I want to talk about my friends! I want to share with you what makes them so special to me!
Karen Sutton- I think that I have shared about here before, but I will do it again. She is always here! I love her availability. I can always count on her to be happy to see me and to have something to say to me. She is VERY giving. She could be easy to take advantage of, but I refuse to do so! I love her dearly! She is a great neighbor. I wish that I had a dozen neighbors just like her!
Jenny Tolleson- She is the wisest, godliest, young friend that I have! She challenges me to be more like Jesus. She is excellent at emailing me. (even though I stink at getting back to her) She is ALWAYS happy. I enjoy the bounce in her step. I wish that she lived closer. We would be great together!
Leah Hitt- When I think of Leah I think of her HUGE smile! She is the most caring, tender friend that I know. She has held me while I bawled on her shoulder and she has laughed with me and made me happy. She wouldn't hurt a flee! She is so accepting of me and all my flaws! I adore her!
Maria Mann- That women is a rock in my life. She never seems to get flustered about anything! She has the most amazing calming affect on me! I NEED HER! She has a wonderful smile and a great laugh ( her whole body shakes when she really gets going :) I used to have her to myself every Thursday night for a couple of hours, but not any more. I miss those times.
Shiela Maines- She seems to look up to me, even though I am shorter and younger than her. I enjoy her laugh. She always knows how to ask questions. She can get just about anyone to talk to her. She has a lot of wisdom that I like gleaning from her. She makes the BEST homemade wheat bread!! Sheila is one of those friends that doesn't change. She is REAL with everyone, and I love her for it!
Paige Weeks- We would be best friends, if she lived closer! She has the absolute best accent of all my friends! She is a wonderful cook! My family has had the privileged of staying at her house many times. She is a very gracious host. We just enjoy sitting around talking!
Rachel Pappas- She is very talented! She spurs me on to try and do new things. Rachel cares about me and my relationship with Christ. She doesn't care much about what people think of her. I wish that I could be more like her in that way. (I care too much!) She has such deep, thoughtful feelings, but often doesn't share them with anyone. She doesn't fool me though, I know that they are in there!
Diana Jo- She cares about me and my family. She understands how I feel about most things. We enjoy talking to each other any chance we get an hour or two free to do so!
Lisa Smith- NO ONE hugs people like Lisa does. She is by far sweeter than any of my other friends. Sweetness just oozes out of this girls pores!!
This is not a complete list of all my friends, just the major ones in my life at this time. I hope that you are as blessed as I am to have such great friends.

I LOVE the pictures of the BUDS! They have such a great time together. Hayden ALWAYS has to pray for JOEL at night!
