nat and mem



she's blonde. i'm brunette.

she likes macdonald's. i like zaxby's. (*she did too after eating there for the first time when we went together. i also gained a greater appreciation for macdonalds from her!*)

she's sixteen. i'm seventeen.

we walk to class together. we sit together. we laugh together. we play games together. she wins at phase ten.

we share a hotel room at polishing the pulpit seminar. her mom and sister are there too. they invited me to stay with them. i stay with them for four days.

we listen to the lectures together. we take notes together. i flip the crispy pages of my Bible, she flips the Bible pages on her ipod. her pen is pink, mine is purple.

we run and race down the halls togther, even though the signs say not to. (shhh, don't tell the hotel staff.) we laugh some more together.

we stick together at the late night games with the teens. boys make eyes at her, we giggle... but mostly roll eyes. we stay up late too.

she's quiet. so am i. we talk though and are comfortable doing it. she's easy going. so am i. we understand each other.

her hair is straight. mine is curly. we both like sperry shoes. she likes to stay late at night in the hall and sing with the teens. so do i. we laugh tons more together.

she likes messenger bags. i do too. she likes tom's shoes. i do too.


she is kind to everyone. she is a buddy to everyone. she is a Godly example. she dresses modestly and cutely. i try to do these things, but sometimes fail. she loves her family.

she is shy, i am too. she is a Christian, i am too.

she lives in Kentucky. i live in Alabama.

her name is Natalie. mine is Memory.

i miss this buddy very much. she is very cool. <3

This reminded me of my best friend Abby who moved to Canada a long time ago. We were very different, but at the same time had so much in common. I definitely miss her.

But at least you two are on the same continent...well country for that matter!!! :o)

sounds like you have a very sweet friend in Natalie! i feel like this about my pen pal from NC and my blogging friends. I wish we could all just pick a neighborhood in some state and move there, and instead of having to blog and tweet, we'd get coffee and go shopping and hang out.

Opposites attract!! Well the looks part I guess since you have a ton in common! Your skin is beautiful! Both my jacket and necklace are from bp nordstrom, and my shirt is from gap on sale for 7$. Just got that. So go check it out! You're a sweetheart!

I love my Christian friends. There is just nothing like that friendship because it goes much deeper than the world's idea of friendship!

This reminds me of me and my best friend. I'm in Indiana and she's in Tennessee. I'm so glad you have a friendship that thrives even when distance separates! God is SO good...and the friendships that HE gives us are amazing :)
