Wow! has no one had anything to smile about in two months?

Well I have something incredible to smile about. From Grade 8 through to our mid twenties I had a best friend. I was her Maid of Honour, helped her in her first few years as a nervous Mom, etc. She was always there for me as well. We were fixtures in each others' families until we just somehow drifted apart. I saw her in the early 90's once but my life changed and we totally lost touch again. I wanted desperately to go to her father's funeral but circumstances didn't allow.

I tried Facebook, phone books, you name it and couldn't get hold of her until 2 months ago she found ME on Facebook. I was so happy and surprised. But again our lives just seemed in different directions and we haven't been able to get together.

Well, today we took Dad into Vancouver for an appointment. We were early and plunked into a waiting room. A woman came out of the office across the hall and I saw a resemblance but decided it wasn't. She all of a sudden came back out and we stared at each other for about 3 minutes before either of us could speak. She came to the waiting room and we hugged and I said to Dad, do you know who this is? He said no, until she said come on "Dad" and he smiled and hugged her. I introduced my DH to her and we talked for about 15 minutes. It was so incredible to see her again. She is coming up to 28 years of marriage in two weeks and we are hoping we can maybe get together with her whole family then.

I think this smile is going to last a very long time. I feel like I have a big part of my life back again.

I can just see that smile Laurie..I'm so happy for the two of you. I had a smile day as well. I to Olivia to pick out a tea set. She had been having a hard time at pre-school with one of the kids and was getting in trouble for pinching and hitting. So she and I had a talk about how to handle this child..She has noow gone a whole week without getting in trouble and for our Olivia this is like a miracle!!!! She has my temper so I'm trying to teach her to reign it in like I learned to do. And so far she is doing great...so today she was treated to a shopping trip...Brother got a little something as well Ahhh life with kids

Kades, you remind me of my favourite Grandmother. Lessons learned (and there were a few) were always rewarded! And you are a big softy!

Hmmmm! The last thing that made me smile? I won't go into any details right now, but someone is making my life very happy and I'm smiling a LOT!

More another time.

The sound of Ethan's voice when I called him and asked if he would like to spend the night with us...The little guy feels as if he needs to compete with Cade for our attention, which he doesn't, but we are trying to get him to realize, he is a special child in our hearts..So he will be here soon and I'm looking forward to spending alone time with him before everyone comes tomorrow...He already ordered hot chocolate and toast before bed
