Farming Friends Layout-Friends are Priceless

My scrapbook room is almost finished! I decided to do a layout to see if my organizational plan is going to work. I am sooooo excited because we are down to less than a handful of boxes:) Pictures will be coming soon:)

During my marriage friendships were very limited because at the time my husband would not allow me to spend any real time with others. He was very controlling and rarely let me out of his sight except to go to work. That's very typical of domestic violence relationships. One of the major blessings of the divorce is the number of "real" and deep relationships I have developed. Tasha is one of those friends I treasure more than anything. Despite her own challenges in life she has always been there for me and has known when I needed an extra hand even though I would never have asked. She is one of those 'angels" put here on earth to do God's work quietly never asking for anything in return. I am indeed thankful for her friendship.Her friendship is priceless.
