So much excitement...

I am so excited beyond words. I got a phone call this morning from one of my bestest friends that I have not seen in around 18 years. Kathy called and said "Hey what are you doing?" And of course since my calendar is always so full I said "Not a thing!" She and her husband are on their way out west for vacation and they wanted to swing by and see us. They will be here tomorrow night and will probably go to church with us Sunday morning. I am so excited. Kathy and I were partners in crime during high school years and till I moved away 4 years later. We have kept in touch through the years, sometimes just on holidays, but we have always had the kind of friendship that no matter how long it has been we just pick up where we left off. That is a bestest friend...

And while we are talking excited, Angie at Angie's Ad-Lib has an exciting Spring giveaway going on. She is celebrating her one year anniversary in the land of blogging. She has some of the neatest items picked out as you can see in the picture.

Isn't she the best? If you would like a chance at this wonderful giveaway go over to her corner of blog land at Angie's Ad Lib and see how to be included. If you have never been there, sit back, relax and look around, you will love what you find. Angie is one of my newest friends and alot of fun.

  11. A true friend is hard to find. Howdy from Michigan, this is my first visit over here from somewhere where there was a castle and a Sisterchick book was just read and being passed on- I forget the name of the blog. I'll have to hit the "back" button.

    Sorry I haven't been around much. We've had so much going on with the loss of our sweet neighbor's son.

    I appreciate your sweet comments and your prayers, Nel. You are precious to me.
