Lifelong friends. (30 days of thankfulness - day 12)

I've been given the gift of several friends I know will be there for life.  Today, I am specifically thinking about Christy and Angela, my dear college friends from Belmont.  We've been friends ever since the day we met - the first day of freshman year when their rooms were decorated in life-size cardboard cutouts of country music stars, and mine was blasting with gangsta rap and D.C. Talk.  They both still live in the Nashville area, and not a day goes by that I don't wish we lived close again. 

Here we are last year in Nashville with all our babies...

And here we are in college, when overalls were obviously in fashion because we wore them every single day...

I could fill a book with the memories I have with these two women.  Practically peeing on ourselves with laughter?  Check.  Loving each other unconditionally?  Check.  Friends for life?  Check.

During the month of November, I'm practicing "30 days of thankfulness" - will you join me?  Use your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to voice your thankfulness for something every day in November.  My hope is that this daily routine will create in me a heart of thankfulness and gratitude, no matter the day or month or situation.
