day 4: the divas

I am thankful for 3 very dear friends that are like family.  They love me the way I am, do not try to change me, support and encourage me, and pray for me.  I met these girls in college in the ever so lovely freshman dorm FCE.  Two of them lived on my hall and one lived upstairs and she went to high school with my roommate.  We've been out of college for about 9 years now and most of my college friends have gone their separate ways and we don't see each other as much as we would like.  However, these 3 girls that I graduated with became some of my best friends in college.  I call them the Divas.  I am lucky that they have allowed me to become one of them :)  Moving on, we decided that there was too much time in between visits with each other and we lived entirely too close for location to be an issue.  Therefore, we decided that once a month we were going to get together for dinner.  We switch off on who hosts each month and it has worked well.  Of course we have missed months because it is very hard to get together with all of our schedules at times.  We've also had to skip some months in the summer once or twice because of traveling and summer plans.  For the most part we have stuck with our goal of meeting up once a month to catch up, vent, share our lives, and spend time together.  We never skip a beat and we have a great time together.  I love those girls so much and they mean everything to me!  I'm so glad that we decided to have our monthly dinner dates...I look forward to them each month!


  1. I am SOOOO thankful for the Divas! You girls mean so much to me. It was great to see you! Looking forward to December at your casa!

  2. Looking forward to it :) I guess that means I need to put up my Christmas tree this year!

  3. Yes! A Christmas tree is a must! I am so thankful for you, too. It is so important to be able to reconnect with people that "knew you when." :) I'm going to throw a little OBU trivia out here.... "According to Hanna," the Divas are awesome!
