Thank God for wonderful people!

As I was driving home yesterday after a lunch with friends, I got to thinking how important friendships have become in my life lately. A lot has changed for our family in the last month. I got a new job, Eric got a new job, Savannah's getting tubes, Mason's growing up and just being himself. Without the support of my IRL (in real life) friends and my wonderful online friends (many of whom I haven't met yet) I don't think I could handle all the day to day changes in my life.

In the past, I was one that would consider myself having just two or three really close friends, but I feel like things have changed and I have so many people in my life to be grateful for.

My OneAmerica friends
Thank you to my OneAmerica friends for lunch yesterday. I miss you and the laughs we all have together every day! Each of you means a lot to me and I'm grateful that we've been able to stay in touch as I changed jobs!

Susan, E and Melissa especially...thank you for your friendship. I have never been so close to my friends at work as I was with you 3. I love you girls!

My Vera Vixens
Thank you for sharing this unique obsession with me! I love that I can be myself and we can all be crazy together!

My Online friends
I must say that a lot of people don't understand this relationship that I have with these wonderful ladies. We all met on a message board some 3 or 4 years ago. The group of us has become extremely close through e-mail and thanks to them, I usually have between 300-400 emails in my inbox everyday. We talk EVERY DAY! We share everything, the good, the bad and the exciting changes in our lives. We've been through a lot and we support each other through the everyday ups and downs in our lives. Honestly, I don't know how moms can make it without friends like you. I love you all and your children as if we get together every weekend for dinner or to hang out with our kids! I respect you all more than you'll ever know and I can't imagine my life without you in it. I can't wait until we finally can meet!

My best friend
Eric, I love you more than you know. Thank you for always keeping me laughing. Thank you for sharing my sense of humor. Thank you for all of the support and love that you've given me in the past 10 years! I adore you.
