Yes, friends and family make me feel so blessed.

And Richard am speechless.

Don't start thinking about having to "part" as friends next year . . . enjoy the moment! I had a hard time leaving "my wife" . . . but we still talk all the time. Take photos of the three of you when you are just hanging out being silly . . . it makes for a great going away gift! You will run into them again, I promise . . . it is the Army way and you will make every effort to keep in touch! Nothing can keep girls apart not even miles!

Ok, so I'm crying when I'm supposed to be heading to your house. I feel so blessed to have both you and Kelly as dear friends. I love you so much Sarah.

I've learned in life to cherish and to do my best to hold onto the truly good people, because they are the exception, not the rule. They're precious.

In other words, count your blessings.

I don't know what happened to make it such a dark day for you, but there are a lot more people out here who agree with you and are happy to read your viewpoints. Good friends will stick by you no matter what, no matter what you believe, no matter who you love and no matter what you do.

So we can safely assume that you've never distanced yourself from friends because of THEIR politics? :) (Just kidding.) Happy Thanksgiving.

A late Happy Thanksgiving!
I know what it is like to lose friends due to political convictions, happy you found some there. AND you taught them to knit! Lucky them ((:

That was so sweet! I'm so happy that you all found each other.

Hold on tight, because great friends are hard to find.
