A friend is....

  • Someone who seeks you out on the day of your Mom's funeral just to let you know she is thinking about you

  • Someone you can pick right back up with, no matter how long it has been

  • Someone you can laugh with about the silly things you did as a kid

  • Someone who rescues you from your kids when your husband is out of town again

  • Someone who pushes you to grow

  • Someone who loves your kids and tells you how good they are all the time

  • Someone who knows you are struggling and reaches out

  • Someone who is a sister even if not by blood

Rico Suave

Elijah has many talents and gifts but right now he is a little Rico Suave. In the past two weeks I have heard him say the most endearing things. Here are a few snippets.

"Mom, you are the best mommy I have ever had."

"Wow mom, you look very beautiful today."

"Daddy you should give Mommy a kiss."

"Here Mom, I saw this flower and thought of you."

"Mommy, you are the most beautiful mom ever."

And then the most suave of them all...

"Auntie Sara, you are so beautiful."
