I can remember the first time I saw Margo.  It was when she came to check out the church for the first time, because she was interested in becoming our worship leader.  Chad was still in Iraq, and I had been praying for my best friend to come into my life.  That one best friend that everybody prays for and hopes to have the pleasure of knowing.  I knew when she first came that she was that friend.  She had a commitment to finish in the Virgin Islands, but she came back a little bit later.

It just so happened that around the same time she moved here, Pastor's wife's niece moved about the same time, and she was around our age as well.  I knew that they were both new to the area so I talked to my sister and we decided to ask them to dinner to get to know them.  There aren't too many young 20 something people at the church.  They agreed!  It was such a wonderful time with all 4 of us.  We called ourselves M.E.A.T. (Margo, Emilee, Alicia, Tiffany).  We had many fun times together.

We had a GREAT time together as MEAT.  First, Tiffany moved to North Carolina because she wanted to finish school over there.  Then my sister moved into town, and got more involved with a young adults group.  So, it was just me and Margo left.  So we got really close.  Closer than we were before.  It was TOTALLY a God thing.  It was a God thing for all 4 of us to become friends, and I will treasure the times we had together.  I know we will all be together again.  We just HAVE to be!

So now Margo has left.  Crazy enough, God has called her to North Carolina as well.  So the consonants are in North Carolina, and the vowels are in Texas.  God is good, and I know he will take care of us.  I just miss my best friends.  I wish we didn't have to be apart, but I know God is going to take us to new places, better things!  I love you girls.

Now, Margo has helped me a WHOLE lot because we both sing.  It's amazing what she was able to show me and help pull out of me that I never knew was there.  God definitely brought us together for more things.  We have gone through a lot, but I know there is more.  I am so excited to see what is in store.  It really sucks that we have to be apart right now, but it's all in God's will.

I am so blessed to know Margo, and so honored to be her best friend.  I am SO sad she had to leave, but I know good things are in store for her.  Plus, she is getting married!  So I am happy for her on that.  She has waited so long, and I know she is happy, and so I am happy for her :)

I have become a totally different person since I have known her.  I would have never even IMAGINED 2 years ago that I would now be the worship leader of the church.  She has helped me figure out my calling.  I always had a small inkling, but I was never really sure, but with her help, I figured it out.

We have had some special times together.  I will NEVER EVER forget those times.  I actually think it's going to be hard to adjust to things we used to do together a lot, that I will be doing without her now.  I know we have gotten on each others nerves sometimes, but who doesn't?

I love you Margo, and I am so glad that we have been friends.  I don't EVER want our friendship to end, and I am going to do my best to not let it (even though I don't think it will).  You are the best friend I have ever had, and I don't know if I will ever get one as close as you have been.  I can't wait until we are together again.   I am going to miss you a whole lot, but God knows what He is doing.  I am excited to see what He has for our future.  I know it is going to be good.

I thank God for technology.  It will make life a lot easier for us.

I love you, Margo.  I'll definitely be seeing you later!
