walked in my room to find them having a little spontaneous chit chat!


brought back memories of me & my sister having such talks!
oh MY the things we would discuss!
many VERY important things you know...
and i know many NOT very important... darn right silly things!
but that's what girls DO!


for me... talking... sharing... for that matter... just sitting... with a best friend...
is a TREASURE!


when we talk... share with another woman it is MORE than just chatter...
it reaches your heart!
it's like a big happy pill for your soul!
like a stirring within you that lets you know you're special... a part... HEARD!
she UNDERSTANDS... she get's it!
knows that the SHARING is the important thing!
nothing to be fixed here just someone to HEAR you!  


with each moment shared... no matter how simple... the bond makes us STRONGER!
shows us who we are...
helps us stand tall...
proud...
WE are a PART of something VERY special...
what a GIFT we have in EACH OTHER!

we are free to stand TALL...
because they are right there... to lean on AND to catch us if we fall

we are ACCEPTED...
in spite of our weathered & sometimes thorny surface

we are BETTER...
because once they have rooted within us we are never the same

we are STRONGER...
because we sure don't bend easily when someone's right there supporting us

we are SATISFIED...
because when our hearts are thirsty they are the rain that pours from the sky

we are BLESSED...
because with them... we run faster... laugh harder...
and there is no tree we cannot climb!

bee cee & me! i am guessing this was when we were eight or nine? gosh... it is so hard to tell! i don't see my forehead scares which helps with the date a bit.

those were the days! the mall arcade took alot of our allowance... my game of choice was mrs. pacman... her favorite was tempest! beth could play tempest so well she got to add her name to the list of champs!

orange julius... oh remember that place... it was so good! we had to go there if we were at the mall. the days when you could drop your kids off at the mall with some sense of knowing they were safe! i can't imagine that now! crazy!

my nickname took shape about this time i'm guessing! there was a friend of ours that had a little baby brother... he could not pronounce my name so he called me CACA! yes CACA! i have been called that ever sense! what is it about little things like nicknames from our childhood that bring such comfort? i guess it is the memories that are connection! connected not only in our minds but in our hearts! who would have ever guessed that being called "crap" would make me happy... but it does!

here's to you bee cee... my best friend since first grade! no one knows me like you do... the stories... the mistakes... the flat out craziness! thank GOD! we can always pick up right where we left off! we can be truly honest with one another even if it hurts! we can make each other pee our pants! my word... we have done some really nutty... silly... crazy things! i am so thankful to have such a gift!

my life has been blessed with the best friends any gal could dream of... my friends are priceless gems... they are the glue that keeps me together!
