Soul Sisters

For awhile now I've been rolling over an idea for a blog post about "Forever Friends" which I will be writing soon. But first I wanted to share the awesome coincidence that one of my dear friends has been thinking the exact same thoughts as me. I received an e-mail yesterday from a childhood friend of mine Liah.

This is a picture I took of Liah back in 1999 on our road trip to a concert at the Gorge.

I was happily surprised to receive an e-mail from her as it's been about two years since we last spoke. I loved Liah's e-mail and I hope she won't mind but I want to share a paragraph with you.

"Yesterday I discovered Mandy Moore's new website called at Its a new site that seeks to inspire women to challenge themselves by finding balance in their lives and taking risks. The site is a little cheesy but it got me thinking about a new way to challenge myself. I thought about setting a goal to exercise more, eat healthier, or study more, but then it dawned on me these goals are good but they are all about wanting more. So I asked myself the question, what do I already have? This little voice in my head said "the most loving and talented women friends." The only problem, however, is they probably don't even know I feel this way about them or even how much I really care for them because I don't tell them. In fact, I don't even make time to keep in touch with them most of the time. In other words, it became clear yesterday what my challenge should be: I need to be a better friend."

I can't tell you how many times I have thought this exact same thing! I'm sure a lot of us women struggle with wanting to be a better friend and needing to show our friends how much they mean to us. I thank Liah for not only reminding me to be a better friend but for the friendship we share together.

I truly believe Liah and I's relationship is one of the most special of connections, one of the soul! We have never been the super close type of friends and we go many many years without any contact. Yet we are always connected! We are imprinted on each other in a beautiful way, and when we see each other it's as no time has passed at all. We are two old "soul sisters"... two forever friends!
