Isn't She Lovely???!!!

Meet my beautiful and beloved friend...
We've walked through life's very high's and very low's together for about 12 years now. Is that for real Wren, 12 years (that would be A-bug's new dubbing of her name this weekend. It seems quite fitting as her oldest son named me Turtle a few years back. Aren't the baby-deemed names always the sweetest?)??? God has brought our sappy college-crazy lives outta the pit, and allowed us to walk hand-in-hand (whether in the flesh or via some form of technology) through our mountaintops and valleys with Him and each other. One of those always-there-just-in-the-nick-of-time, always pick up where you left off, and knows me deeply and yet loves me deeper still, kinda gals.
She makes really beautiful babes that giggle and smile much too (2 out of the 4 were in tow with her down here this weekend.)

More pics on the weekend later.
Man it's good to get some precious sister-friend time in...even when adding 3 kids into the mix, cuz that's just life now. It's like pressing the refresh button on my computer when life gets all frozen up and when the refresh is complete, all seems clear and right in the world again. And a little sweeter too. If you don't have one of these gals in your life, go get one!!!!

Thanks for making the time and sacrifices to come love on us Irwin gals, Wren! We LURVE you and your babies much. Thanks for being this kind of friend, that God blesses and honors, to me...

"A friend loves at all times, And a brother (SISTER) is born for adversity." -Prov. 17:17

"Ointment and perfume delight the heart,

And the sweetness of a man's friend gives delight by hearty counsel." -Prov. 27:9

"As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." -Prov. 27:17
