I am so excited. My best friend, Beth, is coming for a visit! She'll be here the weekend of the 16th--so I am makin' plans for lots of talking, lots of hot chocolate and lots of fun.
We met in 8th grade English class. We were both talking so the teacher moved us next to each other right in front of his desk so he could keep an eye on us. Who knew that more than 40 years later we'd still be talking?
She still lives in California, and in the ten years since we've moved to Colorado we have tried to get together whenever we can, and talk on the phone as time permits. She is a therapist who specializes in grief counseling, and is very busy. Those of you who have read my mystery novel should know that the character of Kate is based upon her. It's not entirely Beth, but is very much like her. Maeve and Kate are the two of us. In college we used to write our own Nancy Drew stories to amuse ourselves, and the girl detective is still one of our heronies.
I'm just so excited. It's been about three years since I've seen her. I think the Martin Luther King holiday is my new favorite holiday!!
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!
