We went to Provo today and spent some time with Julie between her classes. We had an appointment down there and it was a good time to catch up with her. She's been doing so great in her classes and at work! We are so proud of her! It was fun to have lunch with her. We took Carly out of school today so she could go with us and see her big sis. The kids were so excited to see her! They were sad we couldn't bring her home and keep her. Secretly, so was mommy--but don't tell anyone. I'm not sure mommy's ever outgrow that feeling ~ but I'll have to get back to you on that one.
We also went to visit one of my very dearest and sweetest friends. Her name is Venice and I had the blessing of working with her for years. She lost her husband about a year ago and we keep in close touch. She has worried over my mom and dad and was so sweet to knit each of them a lap blanket. She worries that their legs will get cold while they are sitting. She also knitted my babies first blankets, which they are both still very attached to. I love this dear friend so much and am so grateful to have her in my life.
I really have been blessed with truly wonderful friends and a beautiful family. It was so nice to spend time with both today. My spirit is happy.
