Old Friends...

Yesterday hubby and I did a rare thing... we walked around the local mall. So many things had changed or relocated since we were last there (spring, I think?). New stores, GONE stores, etc were a marvel to us.

As we were leaving, I spotted a familiar face in the next kiosk and I ran to get a good HUG from my OLD FRIEND, Candace Brown. She told me her new married name; we chatted a few minutes and marveled that each of us had been thinking of each other recently. I had no idea how to contact her since her marriage. Now I can at least look her up!

I encouraged her to come see us at the church again. We genuinely love and miss her. Its been a LONG time since we heard from her (over ten years) and longer since we last saw her. It was good just seeing her and getting a hug. I hope we can see her again soon!

Proverbs 17:17  A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Having a "MOM" MOMent...

I am so happy I was able to scan some photos of my family when I was home to Michigan recently. This photo of my mom was taken about the time she and dad dated and then married.  Supplies are Scrap Girls products. Here is the online gallery view with comments:  MOM @ 16
