Elizabeth has been with me through the best of times and the worst of times. She actually became friends with my mom first - in the closet of a dorm room at Florida College. That first semester at FC, I was terribly homesick and sat in my dorm room feeling sorry for myself and even though Elizabeth didn't know me, she came by my room every day inviting me to go places - even if it was just to the nasty cafeteria. Realizing that this girl was never going to give up, I finally agreed and we've been the best of friends ever since.
It's been about 7 years since we lived together, but we still talk on the phone all the time and when we're together, it's like we were never apart - those are the kind of friends I love.
Most recently, Elizabeth flew in from North Carolina to Lubbock to be with me when Eli and Landon were still in the hospital. She dropped everything to be with me when I needed her and she couldn't have come at a better time. She was a cheerleader for me, she kept my spirits up, she cried with me, prayed with me, and laughed with me and she got me through one of those weeks in the NICU.
And you must see these onesies she got the boys with her picture on them.
Eliabeth and J have been dating for several years now and got engaged yesterday. I just couldn't be happier for them. While I don't know J as well, I've only heard great things about him and know that he must be pretty wonderful to be marrying Elizabeth. What a beautiful couple!
