BEE-CAUSE AWARD

"BEE-CAUSE AWARD"
for my friend who:


Makes me laugh so hard I cry
Accepts me...flaws and all, without question
Is completely real... all the time, no matter what the cost
Always makes me feel welcomed...loved, special and appreciated
Is a welcome sight when she shows up at a function I was dreading going to
You love as if you've known her your whole life
Feels more like a sister than a friend
Has captured a special place in my heart that can never be retrieved
Can say, with just a look "Don't worry, I'm here for you;
I support you; just hang in there; tough it out; It will be better soon; and I love you."
Will stand side by side in battle until the end without question

She's been in my life for the past 16+ years. Her love and encouragement have taught me how to love more and be loved. I am blessed--my life has been forever enhanced by her. Bless you my sister.

This tribute is to you, Be Still and Know(http://rlambright.blogspot.com/) .

Love you more than words can express.

Wow...I didn't know you two were real life friends. It's always neat to see who in blog land know each other in real land. :-)
You are indeed VERY blessed to have friendship like this and for so long.
Blessings,
Paula

I knew the award was for Robin before I finished reading the post. TREASURE this close friendship. One of the dearest long time friends of mine passed away two years ago. I miss her SO much. We were close friends for over thirty years. I don't know of any friend that I laughed with more. And we went through tough times together also.

Thanks so much for your prayers concerning the latest hurricane, Ike. Curtis and I were talking tonight about what we should do.
For now we will just wait and watch. . . and pray.
