Who finds a friend, finds treasure

She said YES!! My very best friend, M, recently got engaged to the sweetest guy, DT! I couldn't be more excited for them!
Yesterday I got a cute, little surprise in the mail...
I was literally jumping up and down when I finally got all the pieces of the puzzle together! Ask D, he was laughing at me! M...I'm honored to be a part of your very special day! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you and DT. You guys deserve the very best!

M gave me this sweet poem in a card on the day we graduated college. She probably doesn't know I still have it...but I love it and will cherish it forever!

My dear, sweet,
one-of-a-kind friend,
do you know how much
you sustain me in this crazy world?
Do you have any idea
how comforting the sound of your voice is?
How wonderful it is to know
there is someone in this world
I can always count on to understand?
I know I don't put this into words
nearly often enough-
that's why I'm doing it now...
so you'll know that there is one heart
who always holds you dear,
who appreciates your wisdom,
wit, and compassion,
who always hopes for your happiness.
I don't know what I'd do
without these gifts of yours,
my dear, sweet,
once-in-a-lifetime friend.

-Renee Duval


  1. Ahhhh! Your post made me cry! I did not know you still had that card. I wish I could have been there to see your reaction, I am sure it was priceless! Love you!

  2. Oh, did you notice that Danny had to photoshop Amy out of the picture?
