As posted last week, my BFF Beth came for a visit this past weekend. I was able to have her with me all day Saturday, and it was the best! We talked a lot, laughed a lot, ate too much, and even shed a few tears. It was fantbulous!
We went and picked her up at the Mining Museum on the north end of town where her travelling companions met us. They went on to see the sights around Colorado Springs, and Beth and I got to spend the day together having such a great time, such good talks, it didn't feel as if it's been three years since we last saw each other!
We had lunch at Gunther Toody's Diner, where AJ works, and spent a lot of time laughing while we quaffed chocolate milk shakes and french fries. She got a little into it when one of the waitresses started singing "Wild Thing" and it was like being 16 again! All we needed to complete the picture would have been some Monkees or Bobby Sherman music in the background!
That evening, after bumming around and checking out the shops in Manitou Springs, we met her friends for dinner at Amanda's Fonda. Her friends are wonderful people, and we teased and joked and talked the evening away.
After almost 42 years you'd think Beth and I would run out of things to talk about, but we never do. No one can make me laugh like she does, and there are so many things that I don't have to say to her ... she just knows. She has always been a huge blessing in my life, and I am SO grateful that God has given me her for my friend. I'm looking forward to the next 42 years!
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams--this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all--to see life as it is and not as it should be.
I have been married for over 27 years to my husband Stan. We have two sons, AJ (26) and Kevin (24). We have two crazy dogs named Jasper and Riley. I love my life, my family and have a strong faith that directs me.
Feel free to comment on my postings and let me know how you feel. I always like making new friends!
