I remember the first few days of fixing up our house before moving in. I was a little scared, not knowing anyone here in Owosso. I'll never forget standing outside taking a break and here comes this cheerful "gal" from next door. She excitedly introduces herself and tells us a little about herself, how her little girl is only 10 months older than Maddie(who was a baby at the time). I instantly felt peace come over me, like God had brought this "gal" into my life to be all that she has been to me for 6 years now, a wonderful friend. So glad you are my friend, and to have you right next door is such a blessing in so many ways. Not only have Ruth and I become friends but our chidlren are great friends too, even our husbands are friends. There have been alot of memories made and it so so awesome to have children that are close in age and right next door. We have watched as they ran back and forth from one yard to the other, yelled at eachother over the fence, rode bikes up and down the sidewalk, sold lemonade at our yard sales, and last night another memory was made. As I was making dinner Maddie and Bella were trying to get up on the counter and I said you know that is not ok. "But mom...Sophie and Sarah are out there". I'm thinking they are not because it is dark and cold outside, but I pull back the curtain and they are Sophie, Sarah, and Samuel at their dining room window trying to get a message to Maddie and Bella! It was one of the cutest things, here are all of these little children with no care as to how cold it is outside, talking to eachother through open windows in the middle of winter. Sophie, Sarah, and Samuel were delivering the message that they wanted to get toghether and make a play. Even little Ruby got in on the action. It really brings a sense of peace to know that we have found not only one friend but a family of friends and they live right next door.
We love you guys:))
