Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Sometimes, if I don't see Emily for days I go through separation anxiety. She's like a big sanity pill when my life gets a little overwhelming. She grounds me. She helps me to NOT obsess. She makes me laugh.


Well, maybe that was pushing it just a bit.

So today when I started getting the shakes because it had been almost two weeks since I'd seen her, I called her up and invited myself over.

We can do that with each other.

The only problem was this nasty snow storm we've been having combined with her hair raising-white knuckle dirt road with cliffs on either side. We were going to have to park and hike in.

So the kids and I loaded up and chugged across town in our 4 wheel drive, chains banging on the dry spots on the pavement and slipped and slid our way to Emily's. We hiked through the woods and over hills to finally reach her house. The kids played in the snow for hours and we sat in her nice cozy house and talked about nothing for a really long time.

It was perfect.

Love those times. Glad you made it there! Today I wrapped a rope around my middle and pulled the littles through the snow to a friends to have tea and adult time.

That sounds wonderful. It's so great to have God given friends like that.
Have a wonderful Christmas!

You complete me. HAHAHAHAHA. I wonder how many people get your humor, besides me?

Love you and love your wacky skewed humor. You make me laugh. (oh, and keep me sane too. Thanks for that.)

You complete me....Jerry Maguire? Did anybody get that other than me and Em?

I have a friend like that, too!

I love the photo! You are more brave than I am though, I would not have ventured out!

I got it:) That is so great that God gives us friends like that. I am sure no one will forget the Winter they had to hike to a friend's house.
Merry Christmas!

Friends, especially invite-yourself-over friends, are a tremendous blessing!
