This summer before school started my writing accountability partner and I met at Breitbeck park in Oswego, New York for a "photo shoot". Amy was in the process of updating her one-page sell sheet, book proposal and website and wanted to include current photos. We had so much fun - with change of clothes and an array of backdrops in one location...the picture taking began.
Our relationship started over a year ago after I developed this website in an email from Amy, inquiring if I would be interested in helping her with her book. I was just getting started myself yet in the Spring of 2011 we "just happened" to end up in the same memoir writing class. I so love the way God works.
Since that first class, we have been meeting once a week to write, discuss our writing, critique, share, and grow as writers. Although we set out to be each other's accountability partners and keep our writing moving in a forward direction ~ what started as business has grown in to a sweet friendship.
Yesterday we sat together for hours - no discussion of writing, no critique or actual writing...instead I held her hand, cried with her, prayed for her, and listened. As we walked out the doors together with a final hug...tears rolling down both our cheeks. Only God would have known the blessing our friendship would be in the future.
Have you ever started a relationship with someone for business, work, or obligation only to have it develop in to a precious friendship? God is good....
