Let me back up and give you a little history here.
Summer 1999. I was trying out for Rangerettes and when it came to Sunday I didn't know of any good churches in the area. I had Bible study in my dorm room and invited anyone who was interested. In came Tandra, she asked for prayer for God's will for her life. It has been a God-given friendship ever since.
We have waged many a battles against the enemy together, laughed, plucked, waxed, dreamed and believed God for one another. Not only have we lived together, but we have SHARED a room and a bed three times. If it wasn't for her, Joe and I would have never met. We got married a month apart and had babies close together as well. Just one of those friendships that only God could orchestrate.
FAST FORWARD x 3 (you know how it does that on DVR). Three weeks ago, Laura and I talked about her coming to visit. I was really excited.
FAST FORWARD x 1. Last Thursday, Isaac and I headed to Kindermusik and then Laura was coming at one o'clock. When she pulls up, I see someone else in the car. I thought she brought Davan (her friend from work). I thought, "oh fun!" THEN OUT COMES TANDRA!!! I am freaking out! Wait a second, where is her baby!?! IN THE BACK SEAT! We have not just one visitor but THREE! yahoo!
Oh, how I love surprises! I love the kind that you have no idea about (no even a iota of an idea that it is coming) THEN BAM! Tandra and I haven't spent consecutive days with one another since we got married. Oh glory, I was so excited!
Here is Tandra freaked out about the horses :)
This is Laura's dog, Bailey.
