My Clemsongang

My freshman year of college I was surrounded by all kinds of people at Clemson.  And being an engineering major, a good majority of those people were guys.  Now, some girls would LOVE this.  And I thought I did too… until I realized that I wasn’t making that many friends that were girls and I knew that if I was going to make it through college with my head still on straight that I needed a solid group of girls that I could lean on, be accountable with and to, and ones that could pray for me and I could pray for them.  I knew FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) had freshman bible studies so I picked one that was meeting on a night and in a location that worked for me.  It was meeting in the evening in the basement of the freshman girls dorm and while I wasn’t living in that dorm first semester, it was right next door.

Little did I know that walking in there that first time, nervous and shy and a little unsure, that I was meeting LIFELONG friends.  These girls have been my strength, have prayed for me more than almost anyone (other than my mom :-)), they’ve made me laugh SO much over the years, and I really can’t imagine my life without them.  We’ve been in each others’ weddings, we’ve met babies in the hospital, we’ve walked through one of those babies having a brain tumor, we’ve walked through parents with cancer, we’ve celebrated new jobs, we’ve been excited about trips each of us have taken… and I can’t WAIT to see what the rest of our lives bring.

This past weekend we had our annual trip where we come with husbands and babies (if they’re under a year old!) and do as little as possible :-)  This year was our first year at the beach and if I say so myself, we’re all super excited about this new location!

Thank you girls for such an amazing weekend, but more importantly, thank you for being SUCH a big part of my life!  I love each of you more than I’ll ever be able to tell you or show you.
