Another Chapter Over

Our house in Chandler has sold!  We closed on Friday so everything is done and over.  We were so blessed to have had it listed and sold all within a month.  
I have to admit I never really appreciated this beautiful home because I never actually wanted to move in the first place.  We found out we were going to have to move when I was eight months pregnant with Tyler.  I was not happy about having to leave my comfort zone here in Tucson. Looking back I now know that God put me in that house and in that neighborhood so he could bring two of the most wonderful women I know into my life-- Keli and Debbie.  Keli lived in the house across the street when we moved in.  I saw her walking a baby in the neighborhood and decided to stalk her until we got the chance to "bump into" one another on a walk one day!=) She had a new baby named, Tyler as well.  She is an incredible person and I was so sad to learn that just as we were becoming good friends that she was going to be moving to Chicago.  I was really lonely again until I realized that the cutest little pregnant lady was moving in!  That was my dear friend Debbie.  After a few short months, and I swear the biggest pregnant belly I've ever seen she gave birth to Travis.  We had such a great time with our boys.  She was with me every day of my pregnancy with Emma and was a major source of support as we road an emotional roller coaster dealing with Emma's hemangioma.   Shortly after I had Emma, Debbie moved away as well.  She and her family moved to Colorado.  As hard as it was to have each of these women move away from me I knew in my heart that I had made a friend that would be in my life forever.  Both of the girls have had a daughter of their own--Keli has sweet Mia and Debbie has cute little Avery.  I am so thankful that God brought both of these women into my life and I am forever grateful for the life long friendships that I established while living in Phoenix.
Although the Phoenix chapter of our lives is closed I am so glad that it happened and we sure did make some wonderful memories.  
Keli and Debbie, I love and miss you both and am so thankful that we have remained friends!

What a touching post to read! I too am so thankful for having you in my life, the only thing that makes me sad is to not see you everyday and have our kids grow up together. Sarah you have been and are the best friend I have. You are an amazing women, wife, and mother! I look up to you and look to you for support all too much I'm sure, but I love you dearly! Congratulations on the "ending of that chapter". :-)
