Feeling Blessed

Just recently on July 16, 2016, I had the opportunity to meet up with a wonderful friend from High School. My friend, Heidi, went to McBain High School and I went to Cadillac High School.  How we met was when we took vocational school together. We had a clerical/business class and we all had a blast while at tech! The teachers were pretty cool and so was a lot of our classmates. I never thought way back then that we would have created a wonderful friendship. Below is a picture of us when we were at Tech School. Yeah, we are all cute with our tongues out!

Years have gone by, and there is this social media page called Facebook. We were able to reconnect via that and was able to catch up on years gone by and was great to know that we both still lived in Michigan.  We always said that we had to try to meet up and that day finally came when the tall ships came to her town and we were both able to attend. So, 31 years after HS, we had the privilege of getting together.
Below is another silly picture and a normal one of us at the tall ships.
 We had to do a fun/silly face!
I believe her boys took a mighty fine photo of us.

We walked around and looked at the tall ships with her wonderful family and chatted and ate kettle corn most of the time. Time may have passed, but we never missed a beat! Some friendships are just made to last no matter how many miles or years that have come to separate each other for a while. 
I really enjoyed meeting her fantastic family. They all made you feel like you knew them forever!  Below is a photo of all of them together.
After we toured the ships, we all decided to go and grab a bite to eat. I believe we just didn't want to say goodbye yet and we were hungry. So many laughs, belly hurting from laughing so hard and lots of catching up and getting to know the family. 
I will never ever forget my friend and her family. They are amazing and have Christ in their lives.  I truly believe that God brings people into our lives for a reason. Some people might only be there for a tad, some to help through certain times in your life and then there are those that are long lasting. For that, I am grateful! 
 Her young boy "B" was our little photo bomber, so I had to make sure to keep him in the photo! He's so cute!
My sweet and beautiful friend, I love ya forever and always. To the moon and back!
Thank you for being YOU! 
Looking forward to the next time we get together.
Love ya!
