I went to a dear friend’s home last week to meet her daughter, Rebekah (who was 4 days old at my visit). Erin is one of my favorite people. She and I met at our first job out of college and were fast friends. She lived with us for a short time and during that time we became very close. We had lots of great talks and laughs and cries too. I never had a roommate in college….so she became that roommate to me (even though Brad and I were already married)….that may seem kind of odd…but it wasn’t – at all. We carpooled together, ate peppermint ice cream together, played with our puppies together (Beignet and Lucy were sweet friends), cooked together, and watched the Olympics together.
Even though I don’t see her or even talk to her all that often, the moment we see each other it’s like old times. Those kind of friends are just so wonderful to have.
I didn’t get any pictures of Erin during my visit…the pretty lady below is her mom.
Rebekah is beautiful (just like her mama). She is PRECIOUS. I cried when I first held her. There’s nothing else in the world like the promise of a new precious life.
