Good Friends

I've been meaning to write about this for a long time, but you know how life is.

When I went away to school last fall I was so nervous. It was so bad that I couldn't eat for awhile because I was so anxiety ridden. The main part of all this anxiety was about making friends. I was so blessed in high school with good friends that I could talk to about anything and I was scared about having to start over in this new season.

But, God. Isn't that how all good things start? But, God knew me better than I knew myself and provided amazing friends for me.

My roommate was random. I was so scared. What if she was crazy or liked to party? Or what if she was super quiet and didn't talk at all?

I prayed and prayed for this person and God knew who I needed. He provided me with one of the most joyous people I know, Rachael. During the darkest times, she was there to brighten my day.

Through my roommate, I met another wonderful person, Taylor. In addition to Rachael, she was so lively. So when I was sad, they forced me to get out of my room. I even remember a time where I was so anxiety ridden that I couldn't eat, but they sat with me and forced me to eat.

I have some of the best memories with these girls. We found a lot of things to do in our tiny little town. Never a dull moment.

A then, I found my church. I could write a whole post about what a blessing my church has been to me.

Haley is someone who I went to high school with, but was never really friends with. Then we started going to church together and God blossomed this friendship through rides from school to church every week.

Tori is a blessing. We met through a leadership group at church and I've never been the same. She's always there and always life breathing. She gives the best hugs, too, which is important.

And then Carlee. Once we all took a personality test, and Carlee is the exact opposite of me. But don't we all need that person? She reminds me of my mom in all of the best ways and loves to have fun.

This is only a glimpse of the friendships that I've made while I was away for 9ish months. I have so many more friends that I thank God for everyday. (Here's to looking at you my Biology people).

All of my friends breathe life into me and fill me up when I am low. They pray with me, talk to me, and give me advice. They laugh with me and cry with me.
