Only 43 more days until one of the most b-e-a-utiful, sweet and caring people on the planet comes to visit me:)
My friend Brittany is coming!
Hallelujah is all I can say. I NEED to see her more than I need...well.... almost anything at this point. Do all of you have friends like that?
She was my FAMILY...and the ONLY PERSON to come to the hospital the night my first child was born. It meant the world to me. It was such a peaceful night for me...but also bittersweet being so far away from my mom and EVERYONE. Her coming to "oooo" and "aaahh" over him made all the difference. She was also there for his first Big B-day Party in Omaha....and by darn...she refuses to miss his SECOND. Isn't that the sweetest thing ever????
Believe me...I lay in bed at night thinking of the ways I can someday repay her for always being there for me:)
She is driving approximately 500 miles from her home in Lovelock, Nevada (I just googled it and that means 6 hours and 44 minutes of driving) to be here....and I am so grateful! Afterall, that's what friends are for.
....To find joy in all the things that make the "other" person happy....and if you aren't the slightest bit interested...faking it REALLY REALLY WELL:)
ha ha ha.
Like the other night when she listened (so intently) to me talk about cutting "Stop signs" and "Yield signs" out of brightly colored poster board until 3 a.m. for Jaxson's CONSTRUCTION PARTY....and then reassured me of how important and critical that was to the party's overall success:)
anyhoo...she is COMING...to Brigham.
and I am excited beyond belief!
