Friendships

There’s nothing like having a great friend. You know the one I’m talking about, the friend who has your back throughout everything and even if you lose contact for a little while, it doesn’t matter because y’all pick up right where you left off as if nothing happened.

I met some really wonderful friends during my time at Welch College. They are lifetime friends. One in particular, my best bud, is one of those friends. We’ve lost contact throughout the years….life happens, you know?

But recently we’ve reconnected and I realize how much I truly do miss her. She’s in Mississippi and I’m in Virginia. But though we can’t see each other as often as we’d like, it’s okay!

She’s a godly woman. She loves Christ and her family and is pretty much the definition of the Proverbs 31 woman.

She is clothed with strength and dignity,

    and she laughs without fear of the future.

When she speaks, her words are wise,

    and she gives instructions with kindness.

Proverbs 31:25-26

17 And Jonathan made David reaffirm his vow of friendship again, for Jonathan loved David as he loved himself.
1 Samuel 20:17

Let the Research Begin!

A co-worker brought this quote to me on Friday. I love it! It’s so true!

I’ve always struggled with confidence when it comes to my writing. Will anyone like what I write?

But this quote was a good reminder that my words matter. If I want to read a book that hasn’t been written then it’s up TO ME to write it!

Writing used to be something I only did for myself. I didn’t like anyone reading my stuff because what if it sucks? What if it’s stupid?

But as I grow as a writer I gain a little more confidence each time I put pen to paper.

This “project” as I like to call it now (not ready to call it a book just yet.) is going to take some time. I know this. I’m going to struggle sometimes. I need to remember that I won’t always sit down and write pages upon pages. Some days I may write 10 pages, other’s 5….I’m taking it one step, one word, one sentence at a time.

Buckle up y’all….it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

It’s getting real. 🙂
