Good friends are a blessing from God.

I am thankful for good friends!

11+ years ago we moved from Arkansas to Rhode Island. Newly married and recently graduated from college. Let's just say that first year was plain hard and leave it at that.

The next year another couple, Amy and Andy, moved to Rhode Island. Newly married and recently graduated from college. Their first Sunday at our church we invited them to our home for lunch. Who knew that a decade long friendship would result?

Within a couple of years our little group had grown to 5 couples. Amy & Andy, ourselves and another couple intended to only live in Rhode Island for 2 years. The 4th and 5th couples were intending to be here forever. God had other plans.

Now they have all moved away - except us and A2. The ones who thought they'd only be here a couple of years. Not a decade. Doesn't God have a sense of humor?

We are so thankful God has given us great friends!! Both the near-by ones, the far away ones and the far far away ones.

The A2M2 Family (soon-to-be M3) plus Andy's Dad.
These 5 (soon-to-be 7!!!) are the best of friends.

We're SO thankful, too! God has certainly blessed us...and our children as well!!!

That's so neat. We had the same scenario and live on the same street...the other 2 moved away one after 3 years and the other after 7. We are still close to them but miss them dearly.
