Girl!

My friend Roberta is here visiting from Brazil. The last time I saw her was 5 years ago
She's been loving on my kids.
She's been my "frainer" ( a friend who's a trainer) and yes, I'm sore!
She's been hanging out with us staycation style.

We've been shopping for makeup at Target.
Today I am reminded of how important she has been to me all these years. She's known me for 17 years and I find amazing how we're able to pick back up from where we left and keep going with our friendship. I am so thankful to God for the blessing she is to us and for her genuine heart towards me and my family. I know God loves me in a tangible way when my friends stop by just to spend time with me and love on my kids. I am so thankful for friendships that stand the test of time and looooong distance.
QUESTION • How do you feel when long time friends come visit you?

É maravilhoso! Adoro quando amigos de longe vem me visitar e quando vou visitá-los também. E essas amizades que resistem ao tempo são realmente um presente de Deus."be able to pick back up from where we left" é uma sensação muito gostosa mesmo, parece que o tempo nem passou. Já revivi isso com as duas, e é muito bom :)

Oi, Cintia! Estou adorando ver as fotos de vocês juntas.
Adoro rever amigos antigos. Entendo bem essa sensação que você descreve de gratidão pela pessoa fazer parte da sua vida, e de conseguir retomar tudo de onde parou. Sinto a mesma coisa quando encontro a Patricia e a Cristina. Amor imenso! Aproveitem bastante! Beijos, Heliana.
