Girls Write Out

Diann Hunt, Carol Cox, Kristin Billerbeck & Judith Miller

I've often said that if Colleen and I were animals, she'd be a Golden Retriever and I'd be a Siamese cat. I'm an introvert and not big on large groups. You have to move me slowly to get into a group of people -- I'm actually very shy, which is hard for people to believe because I'm also very obnoxious. I found this picture today and it just blessed my socks off to see it. This is the weekend I met Diann Hunt. And I'm not going to lie. I didn't like the idea of a 'new' person because I like my quiet time -- the intimate time to connect with friends.

Colleen knew though. She could see the writing on the wall that Di and I were meant to be together. Diann and I are those people that things happen to. (AKA, she gets approached by a stranger telling her she's wearing the devil's colors, my dog is in the country five minutes and gets sprayed by a skunk.)

That weekend, I don't think we ever had such a good time, all of us together giggling like schoolgirls. So when I look at this picture, I just have such heartwarming memories of who were back then. All innocent in our ways, unable to see all the hardships we'd go through together. But that is the beauty of deep and abiding friending. It lasts.

So go make a new friend or tell an old one what she means to you.

I remember when we first met Di at Mt. Hermon too. I liked her on email, but I was still a skeptic. Meeting her made me a believer. I will never doubt Colleen again. :)

I enjoy posts like this where you tell about your feelings. I treasure my friends so much.
Some live in other states, but we keep in touch!

You guys make me cry! I'm so blessed to know you!

I am blessed that you all took me in--and that Colleen saw me as a potential friend. :-)

Wishing all of you blessed friendships!

I think that's why I write women's fiction. I've always enjoyed my girlfriends. Girls think alike. And I love to write stories about those friendships. :)

I met Di online and then at an ACFW conference. Her humor won me. We think a lot alike. She quickly became a special friend.

Diana, I would invite you too, because clearly, you have good taste! And I have learned that I'm wrong often and that Colleen knows me well. LOL
