Friends Forever

When you are growing up and going through elementary, middle school, and high school, you think life is what it is and that everything will continue to be as it is. But then you go to college, and graduate, and get married, and get a real job and you realize that life is ever changing; and with it, your friends change too. You have many friends throughout your life and you think they will always be your friends, but as life changes, friends do too. But I count myself lucky because I have friendships that will continue to last through the years.

A few of my college friends were lucky enough to get together last weekend to celebrate Amy and her coming baby! With so many of my college friends spread across the country, and the demands of daily life, it is a rare treat that we can get together. It was so fun to see you guys! I can't wait to see Amy again and meet cute baby girl in December, and I can't wait until Melissa and Mckell move back to Utah! And the same with Kristi...I know you'll make it back to this great state soon too! And I can't wait to see Chelsie in December when she comes to visit too.

And then last Sunday, Josh and I went up to Logan for Jessica and Bryce's baby girl's blessing. How exciting! It was fun to be there and it was fun to see good high school friends again too. (I don't know how I didn't get a picture of us all together, but I did get a picture of the Logan Temple!)

And then I am grateful for the best friend I have ever had and who I was lucky enough to marry: Joshua Mark Ragsdale. I continue to try and tell him how much he means to me and how great he is in my eyes and like the country song says, the only words that come out are "I love you!" This week Josh has been on Fall Break, so I took a couple days off work this week so we could hang out. We didin't go on vacation or spend lots of money, we have just been together doing things. And I don't care what we do or when we do it because no matter what we do, it will be fun because I am with him. I love him and I am so excited that I get him FOREVER. Forever is the only way and I am so exhilarated when I think that the Plan of Salvation provides a way for the love of my life and I to be together forever. I love you Joshua!!

What a sweet post, Heather! It was soo good to see your beautiful face and to have you at my shower... it really meant a lot to me! You are wonderful! I'm grateful we all met each other as little freshman. It's so fun as the years go by to see what is going on in each other's lives! We all have to get together more often :)
