Forever Flamingo take three!

I know that I have posted about the flamingos before, but as a good blogger friend I am taking on Laurie's Tag to post about where I came up with forever flamingo...

I will try to keep this brief...Once upon a time there where 4 girls that started a bible study togther to try to get to know each other better. It was a bit out of their comfort zone, but they decided why not! Only one girl had young children so meeting was easy. As time went on they had finnished two bible studies before they even knew what happend. Through those first months the girls grew closer on many levels and began to rely on each other a bit more. Following the intital bible studies more girls got in on the fun.

Then there was one special day when several girls met for "fall birthdays" at a tea room. While there one girl brought gifts bearing flamingo stickers...(Who could that have been-maybe the forever flamingo??) As they ate lunch and pondered life they started talking about the possibility of being flamingos (AKA-the YA-YAs!). Then one thing lead to another- you can read more about it here and here . Then one day one of the flmaingos flew north but promised herself and other flamingos that the "sisterhood" that was established and nurtured would never faulter! We have just been through so much in the last 6 and now close to 7 years- births, adoptions, deaths, marathons, moves, camping... AND NOTHING has changed- We are still girls that just want to have fun!!! here and here and here are just three of many examples of how things have not changed. AND...the one who flew the coop is now the Forever Flamingo!

Our next adventure is a trip to Savannah, Georgia!!! In less then a month!!! More to come on that!

Thanks for the tag Laurie!

Isn't it amazing how one simple thing can bring something beautiful and bonding forever. I love it that you girls are so tight. It's hard to find friends that are loyal and commited. You are so blessed to have each other!
