To my Becca, or to me, Becka...

Oh my Becka!!! I love you so much. We talked for 2 HOURS AND 37 MINUTES the other day!!! That for sure was the longest phone conversation we have ever had. Way to go us. I loved our "date". It was by far the best ever. (Say it: "Go Sox!!")

You are such a special person to me. I love that we have been friends so long that I can't remember us not being friends. I love that no matter what is going on in my life, no matter when the last time we talked was, I can always pick up the phone and find you. I am so thankful that I can always count on you and know that you will point me back to the Lord and the Word.

I love looking back and seeing how our friendship has grown and changed over so many years. I have so many memories - happy and not so happy - and so many things that I am thankful to have experienced with you.

I don't know why I like to misspell your name, but it just looks right to me. I don't know why you never say anything, but you don't, and I kind of love that. It is like my special name for you. Weird huh?

I am so thankful that you are the one that has walked through SO many things with me...some that I am sure you thought would never end. (I wondered the same thing too.) I am thankful that I get to watch you and Mike do married life. I love watching you (from afar) be a Mommy. You are a blessing and an encouragement to me. I want you to know that again. I love that now we get to share blogging too.

You have been such a sweet blessing to me since Saturday. I want you to know that. I love you!! Kiss your boys for me!! (Except Mike...just tell him HI when he gets back on Monday!!!)

Amanda, you are so sweet. I got on here tonight to see if you had a new post, as I clicked on your site I thought, "she probably doesn't post but every couple of weeks. But I'll check anyway." Wow what a surprise! I was so blessed to read your kind (but exagerated :-) ) words. I guess I never corrected you about the spelling of my name cause I figured you knew how to spell it anyway and just chose not to. No problem.

I had a blast talking to you the other night throughout the Red Sox game. We'll have to do it again. Are they still alive in the playoffs? Seems like they've lost a lot lately...

It has been a lot of fun being your friend. I could throw back at you most everything you said about me. But, it has been a joy to watch you grow over the years. You've come a long way and now you are an adult -longing to love God with your whole heart and to be obediant to him. Wow. I couldn't have asked for anything better! I am so glad you are going to LHBC -even though you would never come with me when I went there. (No hard feelings)

Hope to see you this fall. I am still dreaming of a trip down to visit.
