A friend indeed

Fred, Elise and I just came back from hanging out with Laura and her kiddos. All I can say is I am so happy to have this incredible woman in my life. From the first time we ever spoke on the phone, our conversations have always come very easily. It's just like talking with an old friend.

We are so different from each other, but so much the same in the ways that matter.

Thanks Laura, for renewing my spirit. For making me laugh. And for being one of my windmills in Holland. Love ya, my D-Sista!

  7. Hi Jo, obviously I love your post because it's about me!! :-)
    I am so blessed to have you and your family in my life. We are so different but yet the same. I feel the special connection between us that can only be felt by true friends. It's a friendship that came about by a diagnosis that neither of us asked for but just look at the many blessings that it has brought about. I love you too, D-Sista!

    Oh yea - I forgot to put on Facebook that not only did Joanne count carbs for me but Fred actually did all of the dishes and cleaned the entire kitchen!

    Blessings, indeed!!!!!!!!!!!
