Six years ago we moved eight hours away from most of our family, yet we've never felt more at home. Why? Because we're part of a great community of people who have become like family, many of whom are also far from their families. 

"Friends... the family you choose." ~ Unknown. Gift #11.

Happy birthday, Kate! 


  1. that is an awesome pic!!!!!! Moving takes courage and it is great when you can come to know great people. A wonderful gift.

  2. John 1:16 For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.

    Relocation is hard, but I feel like the amazing friends I'm making now are a gift heaped upon gift, because I had and still have amazing friends and family at home, whom I thought could never be matched! Blessing to you today, my friend.
