BEST FRIENDS ARE THE SISTERS GOD FORGOT TO GIVE US

I had an amazing experience yesterday that I thought I would share...Yesterday morning I was putting away some baby things in the basement, I noticed a pretty envelope on the basement floor. I opened it and to my delight, it was a letter form my friend Heather. As I read my eyes filled with tears and my heart ached. It was a letter she wrote me while we were serving in young women's together 5 years ago. These words rang in my heart "You and your special little family were an answer to my prayers". Heather and I were friends from the first day we moved into or charming Holladay home and are often mistaken for sisters when were are together. We loved decorating for the every single holiday, going on diet coke runs and midnight shopping trips to Walmart. I think I miss the honking of her horn the most which she did every single time she past our house. I also remember a time when John, her cute husband came over to ask if Jackson could play :). As the day went along I found myself missing my special friend and her cute children which I could call my own. I remembered all the great times we have shared. We once got into a whip cream fight at girls camp......so fun! Yesterday at about 2 PM I was downstairs putting away blankets from an "fort" Ayden and Sammie had built and heard a voice in my kitchen say "Hello Landon". I rushed upstairs and to my surprise it was Heather! I hugged her not telling her that today she was an answer to my prayers. I am so thankful for the special friendship we share and for our Father in Heaven for always listening and answering our prayers no matter how small they my be.
