There is nothing better than a old friend...


I had such a treat last night. I called my dear friend Nancy Little and we talked for a over an hour and I could have gone three more!! We used to work together years ago and she is just the nicest person you could EVER meet.And her sweet hubby Jim was my all time FAVORITE boss!! They both left such a imprint on my heart. I used to listen to stories of her "little" girls and think she was the BEST mom ever! My boys were younger and I would only hope that I could become such a terrific Mom.We have managed to stay in touch over the years thanks to email.I remember once when Travis was in high school and I called her for advice,In Utah!! But if there is anyone with the right perspective about life and family it would be this terrific lady.Married for over 40 years to her best friend,she has the most amazing kids & grandchildren.I dug out this old photo of us in our "Boise Blues" Gosh we were so groovy in the 80's.I know she is a visitor of my blog and I wanted her to know how grateful I am that time stands still with a true friend.Even if years have passed without talking you just pick up where you left off. "Chit and Chat, this and that, the many hours we've simply sat"...Little Family,I hope in heaven my house is right next door to yours! And yes Nancy I will help all the old people!Remember that?(Insert smile here)
To visit her blog go to "The Little's" link on my page...Super cute!!

Oh my gosh Karen, I feel like Queen For A Day!! What an honor to be the subject of your blog today! For anyone who might read this, Karen is the Amazing One (however if you are a reader of her blog you already know that). She is the perfect mom, perfect friend, perfect person in general! I want more than anything to be like her, I keep trying but it just isn't coming together for me. As she said, even after all these years, she impacts my life in so many ways....she has left an imprint on my heart as well. We really did pick up right where we had left off, as if there had not been a day since our last chat, it was soooo much fun! I love you Karen, I'll keep the house next to mine vacant until you get there.
