I:heart:Special Friends -
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another:
"What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
~ C.S. Lewis ~
This week's theme at I:Heart:Faces is Friendships. And it's also National Friendship Week. :) I:Heart:Faces is cool, because it was started by a blogging friendship, which, interestingly enough, was partially how I even have this picture. :)
Emily Case and I met on g-mail, officially, due to another mutual friend introducing her into our chat. At first, I was like "who IS this?", and the next minute, I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. To say it lightly, we hit it off pretty fast. It's been ... what ... 3 years? People never guess the right year. They think we've been friends since we were toddlers. ;)
We've gone from friends, to good friends, to best friends, to sisters, and then to dearest sisters. ;D She is one of the best and dearest friends I've ever had, and obviously, I love her so much. :)
I:Heart:Faces asked us to find a picture that we felt portrayed friendship well. Not many of my friends let me kiss them on the cheek and take a picture, and be excited when I blog it. :) Not to mention, we were freezing cold at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City this past March, and were 3 stories high in the air, trying to capture a Jean & EmilyCase picture.
I think we caught it. ;)
Her eyes really ARE that color, her smile really IS that beautiful, and it spills out of the joyous heart she has for the Lord. She exudes joy in a beautiful way that is only in a EmilyCase way.
She makes my heart spill over with thankfulness for such a special sisterhood friendship.
I am so so blessed. God has been very gracious.
I love you, EmilyCase!!!! :D
