Do you have some days where you think....
Wow! I am really lucky to have such an awesome person in my life.
My friend Melissa is amazing. Like really amazing. She's moved away and started her own family since the days of our prime, when the 4 of us girls would close up shop at our Walgreens job and then head over to the local underage dance club. But she's always stayed in touch, and I don't know if she knows how much I appreciate that. I love my past. Not all of it, of course. But I love the happy times, the fun times...mostly I just love memories. Sometimes this gets me into trouble when I reminisce too long, and then I realize I'm almost 30 and I'm not quite sure where the last 10 years have gone. But I love memories of times with the girls, and Melissa has always been the one who held the group together. She comes to visit when she's in town and I just love to see her (and her family, too!). (And I promise I'll come to visit soon!)
She's just announced she's pregnant with Baby #2, and I couldn't be more thrilled! But when she drove out of her way to come visit me at work this last time she was in town, instead of me buying her a gift...she brought me flowers! And not just any flowers....tulips!
Melissa is one of the best friends a girl could ask for, and one of the best moms I'm proud to say I know. If I have to grow up, I'm glad I get to grow up with Melissa as my friend.
P.S. The tulips really made my day :-)
