As I mentioned in a previous post, it is important for us to invest in our friendships. To keep in contact through the years even when everyday life gets in the way.
Ad and I met our freshman year of college when we joined the same sorority and became sisters. We have seen each other through everything, from being really random as roommates through more serious moments of heartbreak. We have stood by each other’s side during our weddings and we have welcomed the births of our sons. Her and her family even made a special trip down to celebrate my big birthday which was exciting because I do not see them near enough.
About a month ago though, Hubby, Mason and I took a road trip up to visit them. Ad’s little man B turned 2 and it was time for our boys to meet. (And conveniently that same weekend was the National Farm Machinery Show so of course we had to attend.)
B and Mason hit it off (well as much as a 6 month old and a 2 year old can). B is such a lovable little man and he instantly welcomed Mason with open arms. B read to Mason, brought Mason his toys, hugged on him and even bulldozed him (Yes, that is exactly what it sounds like.) And what do true friends really do...clear toe jam from little toes. Yes, B helped Mason by clearing the unwanted toe jam out.
Through all this, Mason just smiled and watched, learning all that he could from B.
I just loved soaking all these little moments in. Seeing our boys together. When Ad and I met all those years ago, we had no idea of what the future would hold for us. No idea that in time, we both would have little boys. Future best friends. Just like their mommas. Two little boys running around, letting their imaginations soar. Getting dirty, while farming or building things. I see so much for B and Mason and I can't wait.
