This one hits different, folks (as trendy young people would say). Please excuse me while a write this love ode to Phoebe...My Phoebs. My person. It has been an honor to walk through this season with you, and not only this season, but every season before it. It is humbling that I get to be the friend of someone so compassionate, so intentional, so truly and deeply kind, and someone whose heart is so true. You inspire me to love others better, and Jesus so clearly flows out of you in everything you do. That I was blessed with a sistah-friend like you, there will never be enough words of thankfulness for it. Our Father is so, so good to us. The coolest thing about seeing you fall in love with Pete (your Pete, not mine haha), was to see him love you the thoughtful and intentional way you have always loved all of us. There is no doubt that he was the one we waited for all this time. And if younger Ashley and Phoebe had known that we would both marry our own Peter B's, well I don't think I could have handled the amazingness of that. The Lord kept it as a neat little surprise for us, isn't that cool?! I love you deeply and I can't wait to walk every other season of life with you and our Petes, and we'll all be in the nursing home together like, "PETE" and then they'll both answer, "Yeah" in synchrony and we'll look at each other and giggle because I don't think it will ever sink in how richly blessed we've been. I love you. And I love you, too, now Peter B, it comes with the territory.
