My best friend and forever friend Tracy visited me for one last time in Kirksville, Missouri this past weekend. We had such a blast, as always. The one thing that will never change between us is that we can always be ourselves around each other. This includes shouting random things, making weird faces, and talking about anything and everything. I love her so much! Something I didn't tell her while she was here, is that I see the way she has changed over the last couple of years. These changes are all wonderful and a blessing from God. Tracy has strengthened her relationship with the Lord, which in turn shines through her words and actions. She took on a huge responsibility of serving in the youth group at her church and is mentor to two young girls. She is a great friend to her neighbors and others in her church. She loves her husband with a fierce love and desires to be a mom some day in the near future. I don't doubt that she is more than ready to love a baby, and will be a wonderful mother!
One other thing I would like to share...we went to church on Sunday, and there was a quiet time during communion. I look over to see that my friend needs a tissue. She takes the tissue and says, "Thanks, I'll be okay as long as there isn't another quiet time to pray to ourselves." She was thinking and praying for her husband's friend who passed away very recently. Tracy is so tenderhearted and a rock to her family. I'm so proud of you friend. :) While, I am sad that I am moving even further away from her, I know that there are many more memories to come, and several Arizona vacations in the near future.
