I don't really know how to begin this post but I don't want to skip blogging about this. So i'll do my best! :)

The past school year, especially the past few months, have been a time of growth in my friendships. I'm so amazed at how different my life is because of them!!! I journaled today that, "never have I felt a greater sense of both the absence and presence of community in my life!" Now, you probably are wondering what I mean by that. It's been so cool to see God mold together the youth from church. We have grown very close over the past few months- between game nights and 2 hour trips around town to find chalk we've definitely grown from acquaintences to friends!! When we're together as a group, we have a God-honoring community and I love it!! I enjoy hanging out with every one of them. All of them have enriched my life and made me look forward to the weekends! :) That is the presence of community. When I'm home alone I miss that community and I look forward to the next time we get to hang out. So thank you for being my friend, you guys!! I don't think most of them know that I even have a blog so they won't see this but oh well!!! :)

Kristen, I could write a whole paragraph on you but I won't!! :) I think you'd be the only one that would read it anyway! Thanks for IMing with me last night. That made me happy! :) Have I embaressed you enough now?!!
