Forever Friends

by Judy

In this world of "friending" someone, counting "likes," and soliciting "followers," absolutely nothing compares to real, face-to-face friendships.

I have so many images from our get-together in Galveston last week. As Susan mentioned in her post yesterday - it was a little overwhelming to look through them all and process all the memories and feelings that go along with them.  However, when I came to this one I knew it had to be THE one for my post today.  

The love that is shared between all of us is real.  We all bring our own unique style to this group, and we're respected and loved for being who we are.  I could feel the love from all of these women whom I just met, and let me tell you, it felt amazing.  There is a special bond between us - a friendship that I feel will last a lifetime.  What could be better than that? 

"If the miles between us won't allow us to see each other, memories will, and if my eyes can't see you, my heart will never forget you." -unknown-

Well said, Judy, my friend! It was such a joy to finally meet you. And I think the best part of all this is that our family of readers here at FOL will reap the benefits of our retreat. Hopefully, our love will spill onto the pages of our blog so that EVERYBODY in the FOL family can feel the same connection ... a connection of caring, love and acceptance.

You are so right. This is a friendship that will last forever and being together just cemented that. Actually meeting and spending time together has helped us to really know each other. And now I can say, "I was there! I saw her shoot this!" As Dotti said, our hope is that this love will be not only evident but shared but all of the FOL family. Thanks, Judy, for this wonderful post and for just being "you"!
