We moved to Memphis a little over four years ago, having never really had any good friends in our first six years of marriage. The younger married couples in the churches we attended treated us with a condescending disdain, while most people our ages (we got married young) were still living the hedonistic single life. It was not until we moved to the Memphis area that truly made some wonderful, lasting friendships. One family, in particular, have been very close friends of our for nearly the entire four+ years that we’ve lived in the Mid-South. Though Ryan and Beth Richardson are a few years older than us, our kids are all the same age and we all hit it off early on. Rachel and their daughter, Katie, are best friends and we often joke about Bekah and their son, Jonah, someday getting married. The eight of us have spent a lot of time together over the last few years.
Today, the Richardson clan will increase yet again as they bring forth yet another bundle of joy, a second Richardson boy, into the world to love and care for. Beth will undergo another C-section today and their family of four will become one of five.
Our prayers are with her for a safe surgery and recovery and for the health of baby Aaron.
