Last year I needed a new "mom friend". As many of you reading are aware...YOU LIVE TOO FAR AWAY.
Ok. now that I got that off my chest. I resolved last year to make a new mom friend and did I ever. My neighbor Betsy. I love her. Today is her birthday. I'm not even sure which one. 32 maybe? She's so wise it's hard to believe that she's so young.
Between Betsy and I are 6 houses, it's a short walk. Between us are 5 children under 5. Betsy has a 4 year old daughter and twin two year old boys. Whew! The odds of all five being well at the same time- slim. So we talk on the phone, e-mail random thoughts at random hours and read each other's blogs. She's an excellent and economical cook. (She's the source of the granola). She gardens, sews and budgets. She has a servant's heart and her faith is the center of her life. My kind of gal - oh and of COURSE she's a Dansko wearing fiend.
Looking through my bazillions of photos I have just these of her: (are you wearing the same shirt, green shirt project eh?)
And here are all of our kids together. See why we talk on the phone during "tv time?" There's a lot of needs there.
I admire and appreciate her on so many levels
But this year, more visits please.
Happy thirty-something birthday!
