"A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where
you've been, accepts who you've become, and still,
gently invites you to grow . . ."
I found this quote today, something I saved from "Academy For Girls" almost twenty-five years ago. I was just thirteen years old when I spent a week down at BYU for this program. I still remember my counselor, Katherine Kennedy (we actually connected on facebook of all places just recently), some of the talks that were given, and especially how I felt and grew spiritually during that time. So, today while organizing some boxes I found this handwritten quote on a little piece of pink paper, given to me from one of the counselors and thought I would share.
It must have meant enough to me back then to keep all these years and I understand why. After my family, it's truly my friends that keep my tank filled and bring so much happiness into my life. Thanks to you all!
