Not communicating often is not the issue, I understand that we all have busy moments and are unable to chat often. This is the sacrifice I made when I moved away from them. I am no longer involved in the daily moment to moments. I am not there anymore to just give them a hug and make whatever they are dealing with better in that moment. I have to adjust to a new way of giving them hugs. That is the way it is and it is okay. Last night I realized this and that it is still going to be an adjustment. We still create new memories with these friends in our own ways with and without technology. We all still make each other laugh and virtually hug.
Today I am super grateful for prayer. I pray every day for my group of girls. Sometimes as a group, sometimes as individuals. I love them all so much. I know that I am not physically there to hug them so God will hug them in ways that I can't. I know that He does. This isn't a pitty party post. Just a testimony that prayer works and that friends are awesome. I am grateful for both.
For kicks and giggles please enjoy some of my favorite Book Club photos that I stole from Marly.
