Families and Friends

Well ,today started out a bit tough because we had to say good bye to Lauren as we headed back to Utah. Brad and Krystal decided to come with us for a day, and so we had everyone ( other than Angie and John back home ) leaving with us except Lauren. Of course I cried, even though I realize we will see each other in 4 months, but still I really miss her. She is doing well and is very happy there and we couldn't have been prouder but still...I miss her.

Then I ended my day with a visit from a new best friend of mine.  She and I met a year and half ago. She was working at a craft show and I was there shopping. I really felt impressed that I needed to talk to her, and after a 1/2 hour conversation, we were best friends and we have been in touch ever since. I am always amazed at how many incredible people there are in the world. My nephew asked me tonight " How many best friends do you have Aunt Lynn" I could proudly say..." Too many to count". Yes, I am a very rich women and tonight I am extremely thankful for Families and Friends
