Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Girlfriends Are Gifts From God


Yes, we really did all go to the restaurant dressed alike.  Our shirts say "Sisters of the Heart" - and that's what we are.  Friends for nearly 50 years.  Some of us for longer than that - some of us met when we were 5 years old and we're all 64 now.  And we're such Fashionistas we even had a second shirt alike!
We met, we hugged, we laughed, we ate, we told stories that we've heard hundreds of time before.  As we were having our picture taken at the restaurant I heard a young woman say, "Oh that makes me want to cry it's so sweet."  I think that meant she thinks we're old.  She would have loved some of our stories.  Especially the one about the thong panties.  But I'll never tell.  :)

What fun! We have a group of girls that get together every year over Thanksgiving weekend and we're heading on to 31 years this year. It's so much fun to stay in touch even if it's only once a year.

I have to think that you are extremely blessed to still be in contact with friends that you've had for years like that. It sounds like a lot of fun, that's for sure! (I can only imagine your thong story.)
