More Than Friends

There is nothing like "Friends"!
May May's friends have been so good to her.
They brought this box to the hospital and I
had no idea what was in it.

It was this beautiful cake!
Welcome Asher (aka "Brudder")

This is 3 of her friends that were at the hospital during her labor.
Bek Bek (as "Little D" calls her) is on the left.
She came to May May's house that morning to stay with "Little D"
so our family could be at the hospital. 
Bekhi is in the middle. She is actually expecting her 3rd baby.
Miranda is on the right.  These 3 are such good friends to "May May" !

Miranda went and picked out several coming home outfits for Mandy to choose from.
May May was prepared for a girl and had a boys outfit ordered but it didn't come in time.

These girls are so sweet not only to May May but to our whole family.
They are taking turns cooking meals and will do anything to help May May!
Friends mean a lot in life.

This is May May at 36 weeks and Behki at 21 weeks pregnant!!!
This was at a shower that some friends gave both of them!

Have you ever seen a little baby boy in pink with a Santa Claus hat on?
Bek Bek is one of May May's neighbors & sweet friend.
She came to the house with a swaddling blanket (just so happened to be pink! lol) and showed us
how to swaddle.  I wish I had took pictures of it step by step.
 I will have to ask her to do that again so I can get pics!
And then here came "Little D" with the Santa Claus hat!!!
It is so neat that once you swaddle them they just calm down and look around.
I can't leave this little girl out!
May May and Nicole grew up together and are like sisters but
Nicole lives far far away now but she still was part of the labor and delivery
through texting and pictures. 
We sure do miss her!
I can't help myself. I just have to show some more pics of the babies!

Big Brother & Little Brother!!!
TODAY I AM THANKFUL FOR....the blessings of friendship.
I know that there are many more of May May's
 friends who are helping and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Just didn't have pics of everyone!

I have always told my children that if you have one friend in your life that
is a "true friend"- hang on with all you have.  There are a  lot of people that
never have the blessing of friends...I mean real true friends.  I could not make it
without my friends. Real friends are like sisters.
 They are a phone call away. 
 They know all about me.
They know if something is wrong just by talking to me.
I am honored to call "May May'"s friends "my" friends too.
And thank goodness for Facebook because we can stay in contact with all of them.
Our family is blessed to know them. 
Show me your friends.
I will show you your future.
A man that hath friends must show himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

Beautiful verse, and so true. True friends are so hard to come by, so when you have one, hang on. I lost my BFF 7 years ago when she passed away and went on to be with Jesus. I really miss her a lot.

Such adorable pics of the little ones, and great pics of your beautiful daughter and friends! I used to swaddle my boys, oh it makes all the difference.

Friends are indeed a true treasure...

Wonderful pictures! Big Brother looks like he is taking good care of Little Brother. They will have lots of fun growing up together.

May Mays friends look so pretty. Isn't it nice that they have been helping her. Now that is true friendship!
