be a friend.
what a better way to be a friend than to know what it means to begin with. in my 8 month of pregnancy i have slim to none motivation. so i am especially impressed that i am writing this blog right now. but i might have to take the easy way out. and research the web a bit for some good friend stuff. you love it....so here you go.
Some friend quotes for the fridge:
A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

When Friendships Go Wrong
all this to say is that friendships are pretty dang important in my life. i live with my best friend now. my best friends are the ones i look to when i need advice, a good walk, watch reality tv, and just someone to sit back with or spaz out with. i am so thankful for the random group of ladies (and joel) that have fallen into my life and i know will be there even if i haven't chatted with them in a long while and they live cross country. they are the reason i have a guest bedroom, just in case they need a place to crash. i love them and how unique and beautiful each one is. heart you. and if you are reading this. you should probably call me, because i am too lazy to leave my house. love that this is the only time i can use this excuse. better take advantage of it...
p.s. i took this pic in korea, and these girls were way too cute.
