Have you ever had a friend who lived far away, and you felt that if they lived near you would get so much accomplished together? That's how I have been feeling lately. I have an amazing friend that I have had since I was around 13. I have always looked up to her, and she was like my big sister. We keep in touch via text and email (and who could forget facebook ;). We talk about everything. We vent to each other through hard times, and the other typically has great words of encouragement that keeps the other going. I couldn't imagine not having her to talk to. I trully admire her.
This summer we have been talking a lot about canning and food storage. If we lived close to eachother, I am sure we would get together often and do all these productive things together. I am sure she could keep me motivated in doing it all. She always seems to be doing something :) This summer she did a lot of canning of peaches. I have to admit that I don't know how in the world she did it on her own. I have been helping my grandma all weekend with canning, and it has been great to have company doing it with me. I don't know if I would stick with it if I didn't have anyone else there. I am afraid I would just give up and quit :(. No, I am not typically a quitter. I am just afraid I wouldn't continue the process due to boredom. Not to say it is completely boring, but it is very time consuming.
Man do I wish this friend was closer to get my butt in gear. I need to get my butt in gear about certain areas in my life.
