The halfway mark.  In case you need a refresher as to what in the heck this is all about, go here.

My friend Jennifer is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.  Truly, she is.  In fact,  people will say, "Oh, I ran into your nice friend today."  My grandparents were big fans of her too.  They loved running into her at the hospital.  I should add here that she's a nurse, working full time and studying for a master's in nursing.  I am so proud of her.  She's the kind of nurse you hope for and the kind of friend you pray for.

She's calm and level headed.  I can say I've never seen her mad or angry or come close to losing her cool.  She's definitely the yin to my yang in that department.   One of the thousands of vivid memories I have with her is the night her car was broken into -  a beloved collection of Pearl Jam and Thinking Plyers was included in the the theft.  Sure she was mad and angry, but she didn't show it.   In stressful situations I think to myself, WWJD.  Sub Jesus for Jenn.  This methodology keeps me in line and my mouth shut.   She personifies grace, I want to be like her when I grow up.

I don't want you to get the wrong idea.  Just because she's really kind, doesn't mean she doesn't know how to have a good time.  I mean, c'mon, she's married to Matt.  Which I've known Matt since I was a kid, so it's funny to me that I would be such good friends with his wife.   My life is much more rich with quite a few more stories to tell with them in it...

And why hasn't it occurred to me until now, to put photos with my beautiful friends?
