Make new friends, but keep the Old

DH & I are blessed to have so many wonderful friends. Friends, if you are reading this, we heart you! We love you so much. You are dear to us. We treasure you, pray for you, and love to see you! The past two weekends have been wonderful gifts to our family. Each weekend has been filled with a visit from friends we knew in Raleigh before the triplets were born. The time in your married life before children are born is a wonderful gift for developing deep, long-lasting friendships. We still keep in touch with all of the dear friends we made in those 6 long years before our lives were forever changed!

Anyway, S & her 2 girls came to visit us in Tampa last weekend & J & her 2 girls & her in-laws took us to Sanibel this weekend. It was such a treat to see S & J, to learn more about their girls' personalities, and to see our children enjoy playing and swimming together. We are so thankful that these friends took time out of their busy lives to be with us. We loved every minute of it!! We hope more friends will continue to visit. It really is sunny, warm, and pleasant at this time of year. I fear the summer will be a different story, so we are going to just dwell on the present! It is PERFECT here now! The greatest outcome of these visits is that Ash has already chosen his wife, and I will love his in-laws! Ha!

I'm with you, those friends you make just before you start having children are dear. What a gift to get to spend your spring break with them.
