Unfortunately I found out that my close friend’s mother passed away. My husband and I went down to the DMV (stands for DC, Maryland, Virginia) area this weekend to be a support for our friend and his family.
Our other close friends came into town as well for the funeral. His family was happy and grateful that we were there for them during this tough time. If you have a few seconds, please keep his family in your prayers. Thank you!
We all went to college together but we all live in different places. So because of duties of life and the distance between us, we haven’t seen each other in a few months and it’s been even longer since we’ve seen some of the others. So it was nice that we all got a chance to meet up again! It was like old times, we’re just a little older now! Haha! We’re all starting families, getting promotions, achieving our goals, etc so it was nice to catch up with everyone!
Also 2 of my close friends from college live in Maryland so I was able to visit them! My friend just had a baby a month ago so I was super excited to see them!
Some of my husband’s family members live in Northern Virginia so we went to visit them as well! As you can see we took advantage of being in town and made sure we were able to spend time with everyone!
I thank God for these great people that I have in my life! They are amazing!
