This past week was amazing!!
Started last Saturday when I hung out for hours with my friend L. at Michael's, the store, choosing mats for some photos she has. We were there so long, we had to actually take a lunch break in the middle. :-O Seriously...we did!
Then I had dinner with and talked until 4am to my friend N. We hadn't seen each other in 10 years so we had loads of stuff to talk about. We used to go to the same church, and some of the stuff I learned about as we did the obligatory "what ever happened to?......" broke my heart right in two! Enough that basically, I just stayed in bed the next day. It was a tough 24 hours to say the least.
But then...Weds, was my birthday, and I got a cool gift when I got arrange for 2 of my buddies to get together for lunch when my one friend was visiting Sac. I was trying to figure out how I was going to introduce them, and it worked out that I didn't have to do anything but send a couple text messages!
Tonight I got invited to a special ordination service for a couple I'm friends with in town. They've come to be special to me, over the last year and a half or so. We've been through some "stuff" together...we have. I was so proud of them standing up there at the altar being recognized for what they've become and the way they've lived their lives!
Next week....I get to spend time with the kids of my friend N. I can hardly wait to hug them! That has got to be the best Christmas present EVER!!!
Speaking of Christmas, headed out to a party tomorrow night with some more folks I haven't seen for a while.
It's turning out to be a great holiday season so far!!!
This song from my favorite band pretty much sums up what I'm feeling tonight...
