Send LOVE Everyday

A little note that had a big impact...

Several months back I was going through an incredibly hard time in my life. I had been faced with something I was not prepared to deal with, and I needed my friends. I leaned on my YA-ya's because they always have my back. 

They were all so supportive and offered me love and prayer and a shoulder to cry on if need be. (which need was...more than once.)

However, when visiting one of my besties, Christine, in Charlotte last Oct., I saw this note on her fridge...
"Send Love to Amanda Everyday".

The note was so simple and yet it spoke volumes to me. We were hundreds of miles apart, living in two separate states but I felt closer to her and all my girls than ever. 

Friends are important wether they are mommy friends (who help you see you are not as crazy as your kids make you feel sometimes), or couple friends (The kind you get together with and hang out as a couple or family), or even girlfriends (who laugh, and shop, and eat chocolate chip cookies with you when you need some "me time"), but there is nothing in the world like the people you know you can count on when it all comes crashing down.

Tiney has been going through a bit of a hard time lately and this post is just my small way to say....Your my soul sister,ya-ya, bestie forever...& 
I am sending you love today and everyday.

  1. What a wonderful post to start off my "Thankful Thursday." Friends are OH SO IMPORTANT!!! I am your latest follower from Take It From Me. First thing I saw when I clicked your link was A Sweet Southern Blog so I decided to follow you and send you some love from Sweet Home Alabama :)

  2. Thanks Casey!! I love the idea of having a Alabama girl as a friend ;)

  3. Great post. It has made me take a minute to realize how much I appreciate my girlfriends. Friends are so important and it is easy to get so wrapped up in your kids that you forget to be thankful for those other than in your immediate family.

  4. I love your post. Thanks for linking up with me!!

  5. Awwwwwwwww...I love this. My bestie and I grew apart a couple years after college, then finally about 6 years ago we reconnected. I LOVE her and her whole family and am so thankful that even though God didn't give me a sister, He gave me her.

  6. This post makes me miss my girlfriends in the worst way! Moving away from them stinks! I don't know what we would do without facebook/email/etc.

  7. love this post, friend. it's so heartfelt and such a great reminder of how important it is to carry each other through the hard times. love that post it. thanks for linking up!

  8. Rachel...I know what you mean!!! Social media saves our long distance friendship!!! Thanks Carina! I love linking up to Thankful Thursdays it's such a good pause in my week!!
