I'm calling it "thank God for your friends day"

I'm entering a new season of life right now and over the last couple of weeks some precious people have been there for me and I'd like to personally thank them right here in pictures!

Sound fun?

Sure. So, let's gooooooooooo!!!!

This is me and Teri. Oh, how I love this girl. She's one of my northern friends! What a gift she and Becky Jo are to me. One day I'll get a picture of me and Becky Jo.


Holla!!! This is another BFF. Love you Robyn. I wish we lived next door to each other.

Nikki....you are the real fabulous deal! The girl is one heckuva encourager!!


Sweet, sweet Kim. What a gift and blessing you are to me. Simply thank God for you!


Oh Mary!!!! I cannot wait to spend time with you. Your wisdom and heart are simply contagious!


Jenny and I are sisters separated at birth. Love her and her family.



This picture makes me wanna cry. Nancy, who is in the middle, is having her 2nd son as I write this! And, Carolyn, well you know how I feel about you.


I love ya Lesley. You are always here for me. ((hugs))

These girls just hold a dear, dear place in my heart. Always grateful for them...no matter what the season is. Love you Patty, Steph, and G.


Abby, Abby, Abby....how I wished I lived in Nashville with you. Me, you and Nikki would be definite BFF's. Now, we have to do the distance thing and I'm ok with that. You both are worth it. ;)


There are so many others that I want to shout out to but I can't find a picture on my computer of them.....

Angie, Connie, Dedra, Tonya, Susan, Teresa, Jan, Jerri Sue, Carol....who am I forgetting??

You know how you have been there for me the last few weeks and I thank God for you today.

Take time to let your friends know how much you love 'em! Life is fragile and short.

Hugs and blessings!!

How the heck God did this is beyond me, but I am so incredibly blessed by your friendship. My heart longs to live down there with the cool people! ;)

I love you Fran, thank you for being there during the crazy-unstable times. And thank you for being silly and fun too! You are a gem, and a true friend. All praise to Him who is ABLE! Love ya!

Mary said...

I'm so honored to be in this Hall of Friends! And you have no idea how the Lord used this simple post to minister to my spirit! Oh, I cannot wait to tell you the story!

God has blessed me so much through this crazy, wild internet thingie!

You, dear Fran, are an encourager, a warrior and a woman I'm honored & humbled to call my friend. Crap, now you made me cry and I just put on the mascara!

Love you more than my luggage.

Melinda said...

Oh how I share the love for so many of these girls! What God has brought together (through the wonder that is the Internet) let no (wo)man put asunder!

Love you Fran,
Melinda

I love you Frannie - so very much ... and you can bet your sweet bippy that we will get a pic of us someday!

You are truly my heart friend and I could NOT love you more if I could hug your sweet neck on a daily basis, or - ya know - EVER!!!!

NikkiPoppins said...

Oh my Fran! I am soo honored to included in this group of amazing women...alot of them I'm so blessed to call dear friends as well!! I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am that God gave the idea of internet and blogging to whoever he did because with out them, I don't know if we would have met! Hate to even write that out because the idea of not having you or any of our dear friends in my life just makes me want to cry!! A huge big wailing fit worthy of Sally Field in Steele Magnolias! I mean it!! I am so blessed to know you and get to play phone tag with you, be an alarm clock/wake up call when needed and make you laugh every now and then! You are such a dear!
Love you sooo much!! Waaay more than my luggage...and orange tic tacs...and, are you ready?...more than Starbucks!! Yep I said it!! And I meant it!!

Can't wait to see you!!
LOVE YOU!!
Nikki

Darlene R. said...

You have been the blessing to me, my friend. I know that you are only a text, twitter, facebook or blog comment away! :D-ha

How blessed I am to know you. I wish that we would have had more time together at the Fiesta...Can you believe it's been a year? How the time does pass by!!

Hugs to you,
Darlene

And.....
thanks for making me cry.
And let's give a holla and a fist bump to the LPM blog for getting us together.
I SO cannot imagine my life without you now. If we lived next door to each other, you would never have to knock when you came over and I would get your mail and keep the dogs when you went on vacation. And I'm pretty sure we'd spend one day at your house, the next day at mine, the next day at yours.....etc.
Let's make that happen. Mkay?

LOVE YOU SO STINKIN MUCH.

Patty said...

Oh Fran, I loved every single one of your pictures. Most of the ones you wrote about are dear to my heart to and I miss all of you.

Love you so much and it won't be too long before we can all get together and have some much needed fun!

Hugs,
Patty

Latte With Me said...

Well, I'd say you forgot me, but I'm guessing you're going to do a whole blog just for me! ;)

I love our community of siestas!

tonya said...

I'm just humbled that you that recognize me in that awesome group of women.

No one could ever know the times that the little avatars on the internet make me feel so loved and all by people I've never met. I want to meet them all and hug their necks. I hope we get a "Tupelo chance" to do that! ;-)

Thank you for pouring in to so many & for the genuine spirit you display.

Love you!

Lindsee Lou said...

I love me some of those ladies, too. And some of you! So sweet!

P.S. My verification word was "frappi!" Needing a frappicino, Fran?? :)

cat said...

Love always
