Do you have someone in your life that you know was placed in your life at that exact moment you needed them most, even if you didn't realize you needed them? A person who, from the moment you meet, just gets you?
I have a friend like that. We met in March of this year and I feel like I've known her forever.
I spent today with her and her family at their annual girl party. I wore a shell lei and a flower in my hair, drank lava flows (yummy!), ate shrimp kabobs and just enjoyed myself thoroughly. As I was driving home I reflected on how blessed I am to know her and have the opportunity to call her friend. It was a good moment for me. I've been so wrapped up in the stress of my car and school starting again that I've forgotten to be thankful for all the blessings I am given on a daily basis.
Here are pictures of our yummy drinks and of my Hawaiian name tag, simply because all blog posts should have pictures :)
