Friends are Healthy for the Soul

Yesterday I threw a shower for my best friend Benita.We have been basically inseparable for the past 10 years. My family considers her a part of the Smith clan. We know each other inside and out. She is one of the best people I know, and now she has found the man of her dreams! :)
 We had a great time celebrating Benita and Scott with so many of Ben's great family and friends.
 It just so happens that so many of Benita's best friends are my best friends too.
 Friends came in to town from all over.
 Apparently I am a right-side-of-the-photo kinda of girl.
 Benits got so many fun and adorable gifts!
 This is the old THS crew reunited. Aren't they beauties?
We talked, laughed, and ate. I made some Cream Cheese Chicken Chili, and it was a hit! After the shower was over I was thinking about how amazing my friends are. My whole life I have been so blessed with great people surrounding me. My friends are a big part of my happiness, which I consider a big part of my health. We all know it isn't always easy to keep in touch with people. Friends move away, schedules get crazy, children are born, and life happens. However, even if time passes, I know my good friends are always there when I need them. It seems like the moment we get together it's like we haven't skipped a beat. I can't even imagine what my life would be like without them. I am lucky to know some of the kindest, funniest, BEST people in the world, and I am lucky to call them my very own best friends. They make me happy. They boost my spirits when I'm feeling low, and they are always there motivate and inspire me!

Benits I am so excited for you! You and Scott are darling, and I can't wait for the wedding!!

Do you consider your friends part of your health?
