Another day of happy tears

Why do all of my friends have to be so far away? When talking to semantique the other night, we both complained about not having that really CLOSE friend near us. Every time I end up with a close friend somewhere near me, either we move or they do. Case in point - my friends Mike and Chrysty, who I have known since the Auburn days. I've known them longer than Scott, and Scott and I have been together 16 years!!! They moved to Dallas around the same time we did, so we got to see them all of the time. It was so great having them near. However, it seems like about 8 years or so ago, they moved up to Washington state. I miss them quite a bit, and we don't get to talk near often enough.

I talked to them on the phone the other day for a long time. It lifted my day.

Today, I was not only lifted, but catapulted straight into the heavens *laugh* Dropped at my door today was this:



It isn't so much that they sent flowers, but that they chose something from the pink line. Guys, if you are reading this, the flowers are beautiful, but even more beautiful is that you know how much breast cancer research means to me. The choice was perfect. Every little bit helps, and looking over at all of those pink flowers is making me smile.

You just have to come visit soon. Our spare bedroom is always open for you.

Thanks. We love you and we wanted to be sure you knew it. I agree we have to find a way down there sometime soon. Even it has been only 5 years since we were exiled to the Pacific Northwest. ;-)

*hugs*

We've been in this house for almost 7 years! The boys are five! Surely you've been gone longer than 5 years.

Ah yes, but you moved into that house just before we left. And we spent two years in AL/GA after that. It is too long... that's for sure. *sigh*
