A good friend of mine was coming over on Monday. We hadn't seen each other in forever and I was super excited to see her. But....as life goes, C stayed home sick with a sore throat and tummy ache. He got better quickly, but at that time I did not know if it would turn in to strep or worse. So we decided maybe to meet for lunch.
That is when she remembered that a bunch of wonderful women were meeting for lunch to celebrate some birthdays in my old ward. It was so fun! There was only one woman that I did not know and I am certain that she is wonderful. All the others, I KNOW from many years of friendship that they are amazing women. I was so blessed to get to go.
My friend's baby, A, and V:
As I got home and realized how many of my other things I had not accomplished, I was reminded of the talk by President Uchtdorf on making time for those we love so we don't have regrets later. Well, I don't regret this use of my time. I love these women and now that I have moved, I miss them a lot. I am so blessed to have such great friends surround me and sustain me. Truly, how blessed I am!
