five minute friday...remember...

One year can fly... and still, be so near to my heart. I sent her a text filled with birthday wishes before the sun rose in the sky... and she replied quickly I am so thankful to be celebrating this day.  Many texts flew that day between us two... but that first one was most telling. And the one that made me full.

We celebrated ringside... at the hog show. There was no place else to be but the county fair, her favorite. Hugs and sweet gifts, and watching her son walk 'round the ring. I snapped photos but wondered if it was possible to capture all of that joy...

Today, before sunrise, I sent birthday prayers and wishes towards heaven.  Our friendship played before my eyes... too short, and yet... so much. Love. Grace. Laughter... and cheesecake.

Oh my dear, how I love you... and miss you...


departing from friday letters today... because the five minute prompt was made for my heart today...

I love this... for today's FMF I thought of my friend too. While we have different experiences, your post reminded me even more how special and elegant and dear she is to me. Thank for for your beautiful words this morning.

I just received a text from a friend reminding me to remember who I am in Christ. Love those sweet little notes we can send so easily yet can mean so much.
