Michelle--The Life Saver

by - 10:52:00 PM

This is my friend Michelle. We met last fall semester when we became roommates. We bonded over breakfast the first morning, and the rest is history. We both had missionaries who we were unsure about, we both like the medical field, we are both the oldest. That's about the extent of what we have in common...but it's good enough for us.

This is Michelle (and Jesus). This picture makes me terribly happy.

Michelle is one of the best friends a dramatic girl like me could ask for. There is no way to count the number of times I plopped down on her bedroom floor (even before we knew each other that well) needing to vent. She would listen calmly, she always says the exact thing you want to hear. Then, inevitably, she makes you laugh. And, everything is alright.

Twice. in two days, I've called Michelle near hysterics. She listens, listens, listens, takes my side, AND THEN tells me she loves talking to me.

Everyone needs a friend like Michelle Anne Yeates. If you don't have one, ask me. I may be willing to share her with you. But, just for a minute. I'll need her back.
