Traveling Together

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Friendships are some of the most precious gifts God gives to us.  He designed us to yearn for relationships. To need friendships. Friends to laugh with, grow (and shrink) with,  friends to help to guide us on the right path and pull us back over when we're headed down the wrong one.  When you find friends who will do just that they are truly a blessing like no other.  My girls, my quad momma sisters, I love you dearly!  I wish we lived much closer but am so very grateful for the time we are given together!  My boys, my quad papa brothers, you are so precious and so darn hysterical. What a joy it is to have all your jokes running through my head days after a weekend trip together!  I thank God daily for each of your friendships and truly feel so blessed to travel this journey He placed in our laps (or bellies, I should say) with each of you!
