Michael and I had all of Monday off and this morning as well. I go back to work tonight after my nap. Yesterday I went to the gym (yeah me) and we ended the day going to trivia with members of our small group. It was fun and we almost won! After that, we drove home (first we had to "ghost" someone as we have now been "ghosted" 3 times) and had some ice cream (I had pumpkin ice cream) and we watched the Blair Witch Project and slept in... Too fun.
Today is the day we celebrate waiting 6 months for LynnMarie (check out http://www.thechristopherfamily.blogspot.com/ for more details) and to celebrate we had Chinese food.
Its almost nap time for me but I have been thinking about friendship lately. Friends are so important. I was thinking how you really have to take care of your friendships. I love my friends. I love meeting new friends. I have to be careful when we meet new friends. Sometimes I can be overwhelming and can hog the conversation. I hate it when others do that. I love it when my friends ask questions about whats going on in my life and ask if they can pray for me. How awesome is that? Michael and I have gotten to meet a lot of new friends in the last couple of months. Because of our adoption, we were lead to our new church. Because of church, we now have a small group, a sort of Sunday School class and I am involved in the Women's Ministry. i love it.
But I want my friends to know I care about them as well. I love having a friend that I trust so much that I can share my thoughts, dreams and crazy thoughts with. My friends are special because I am a bit crazy. Its true. I love a friend that I can really be myself with. friends I feel comfortable with. I want to be able to do nice things for my friends. I want to make their lives easier. Sometimes I am afraid to jump in and help, I prefer friends to ask me to help and thats not fair. I want to find time to spend with my friends. I feel like I have not been doing that and if you are one of those friends, I am so sorry. Please know that I love all of yall and pray for you daily. I want to be a better friend and I want to appreciate my friendships more.
So, are you the best friend that you can be? How can you be a better friend today?

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising
