Friends are like flower...you pick the best ones for yourself!


In honor of one of today's new releases {Floral Friends} for USC I thought I would share this card that I created for one of dearest friends, Melinda. Melinda was my maid of honor in my wedding and has been my best friend for years. Just a few weeks ago she came out here to AZ to visit and to see our new home; one of the things I've been reflecting on since her visit is how some friendships continue to grow and flourish even though obstacles such as distance and time may get in the way. We use to spend hours upon hours together before I moved here to AZ and even now we still find time to visit via phone conversations as least once a week and visits to see one another a few times a year. Having a forever friend is one of life's greatest blessings...who is your forever friend? Take time to reflect on the blessings of friendship :).

With that being said, I also want to thank you all for the blessing of your friendship. I thank you for the support and the kind comments you continually bring to my blog each and every week as you hop from blog to blog. I know I've said this before, but I truly wish I could reciprocate by leaving you comments on your blog each and every week as well as more actively participating in hip hop. Please know that my absence is purely due to scheduling conflicts as I am gone at work from 7am to 7pm on Thurs. and consequently miss all the hip hop festivities.

Well friends I certainly don't want to keep you any longer on your journey today, Don't forget to check out all the fabulous specials on the Unity blog and hop along now to Renee's blog. OH, and don't forget to mark your calendars for the BIG inspirational blog hop next week!

I met my forever friend when I was 19. We've been thru ups and downs, college parties, marriages,births of babies and sadly she moved to Utah a few months ago and is so far away right now. Plus she misses CA and her friends so much she won't call me because she is so sad.I got one email from her telling me this. I've sent cards, called tryed everything to reach out to her. I just have to wait until she's ready...
