Odds n Ends & A Few Friends

Let me start off by saying I'm super sleepy tonight. I ended up staying up way too late last night talking with Mrs S. You get us two talking and typing and we could go for hours, i'm telling ya. My DH gets up at 230 in the mornings for work so from when I close my eyes, prayed and he got up it was just about 1 hour ..give or take.. I felt okay.. I couldn't go back to sleep after he had left so I picked up the house.. Now what crazy girl cleans their house at 4 am? Add the dishes, laundry and took laundry upstairs...

And boy.. I got real tired at about 6 am so I crashed on the couch for one wee little hour. I woke up not very cheery and tired.. I went to run my errand into town and realized while I was on the phone mind you.. my battery was going dead. Here I am on the phone with Mrs S and kaput... I go to plug it in and my charger has a wirer that broke away.. Here I trying to drive and trying to get my phone to hold just an ounce of charge to send her a message that I didn't purposely disconnect or heaven for bid drive into some corner. It was a mess this morning. I was tired and fussy.. with my two smaller kiddos they were fed lunch and off to nappy because I knew if I didn't boy was it going to be a long day ahead.Wheewwww..

Miss K got her cast signed all up today.. Her arm has been hurting her more in the evening.. not sure if it's swelling some or what..I hope and pray it will continue to heal and relieve some pressure and pain each day. Her nurse at the Ortho dr. said when we come back she'll pull out the stuffing after they cut if off and she could save it... Interesting I thought.. Keepsake momento..Welp, this is my speal on how my day went and here's a bit about a few friends.

Friends.. their are very few in our life.. that really get us as a person.. we don't always choose our friends but they come in and out of our lives for reasons we might not understand.

We all have friends.. friends but then you have that one where you can laugh together, cry together, make sense out of life together, just is all right together.

Last Saturday Miss K and I had the opportunity to go visit a good ole friend of hers and her mother (an ole friend of mine). It was really nice scratch that.. it was great..

The way over to the house.. I think K and I were both a bit nervous.. It's been a few years since we had last spoken and that time it was rocky.. but there comes a point in time when you have to let it go.. Life is too short to hold it until you pop..

The first few minutes were quiet between the girls but after awhile they were chatting katties, and giggling, remenescing the older stories of when they attended classes together. Memories, it was great to remember and also catch up on everything that has been going on back then until now.. Kids grow so fast.. but in the same breath we're still the same girls.. same women.. same friends.. It was like we never skipped a beat between her and I. We laughed, cackled and told stories after story.

As I was pulling out of the drive to leave K says "So how do you think it went" I said it went good. I asked did you have a good time.. oh yea she says. It made her spring break end on a happy note so that's is alright with me. I hope we keep in touch.. as everyone has a mainline of friends.. there is a few really fantastic ones that you know you gotta hold onto.

I am thankful for our god, my very closest friend who hears my every thought.

I am thankful for my husband and my many children.

I am thankful for the ability to attend school at home for now.

I am thankful for the ability to breathe, talk, eat, dress, run.

I am thankful my daughter wrist isn't worse than it really is.
Here's a few of many I could go on about..

Please count your blessings and not your misfortunes..

Drop a line and tell me what YOU are thankful for?

Hug the ones you love tonight and sending Huge Hugs to you,
