My Friends are my Estate

Do I comment on friendship too much? Are you tired of my preaching about it's vitality to my life? Well, then, you simply don't have the amazing friends that I do.

Check this out:

Shannon posted this today and it's just so telling. I call Shannon my best friend (and she is!) but her hubby, Chip, is as close. He is so playful and the three of us end up having the most hilarious moments. Like this one- we were just hanging out at my house, Chip had his head in Shannon's lap, and I felt the need to pile on. We're all laughing and so genuinely happy!

These two have pulled me through some pretty bad moments and I admit, I have stepped in for them when needed as well. And we have had so, so much laughter! I have probably shed more tears with them in hysterical laughter than sadness. Chip happens to be hilarious. 

Cherish your friends. Pray for them. Gain strength from them and give them yours. Work on the relationships when you have to be apart. They are a blessing. They are your estate.

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
