“Who do you like to spend time with?”
Well, aside from my mom, T, and my kidlet, there are a few folks I really enjoy being around. Our friends Marc and Gina are always fun to be around. We camp with them, we have game nights and bonfire nights, we spend days at the river together .. we go see fireworks together in the summer and occasionally enjoy a meal out somewhere together. They are a lot like T and I. They are laid back, go-with-the-flow people much like we are. We enjoy their company, and thankfully, they enjoy ours. I am grateful to have them as friends.
I really enjoy hanging out with my boss too. K is a lot of fun. She has a twisted sense of humor like I do. She tolerates my inner 12-year-old MUCH better than my family does! Haha. She is an extraordinary woman, and I am glad to call her friend.
I do not get to spend much time with her these days, but my bestie Holly is always a ton of fun. We can sit and talk for days and never run out of stuff to talk about. She has a freaking HUGE heart. I admire her capacity to give and to love. She is always doing something for someone else. I envy that. I would like to be more like that.
I also LOVE spending time with my cousins Jenny and Debbie. I do not get to see them much since Jenny adopted her FOUR foster kids! And then this Covid shit hit. Ugh. As soon as we can do coffee mornings again, I really want to make that happen. I miss them both very much.
Back to my family.. I really enjoy just sitting and chatting with mom about anything and everything. I love my time with T, when he isn’t making me crazy lol. And my M? She is my greatest treasure. I love her beyond measure. And while she is not perfect, I am very proud of WHO she is. She is a teen now. She can be mouthy. She is often times lazy. But she is GOOD. She has a good heart and a kind, empathetic soul. She has no filter, and she’s not afraid to speak up and tell you how she feels. We need to hone that part a bit haha, but she is truly amazing and I am one lucky momma.
I have other souls who pepper my life with goodness, like Donna, who reads here.. and the rest of you that read and comment (Charlie, Peggy, Eric, Wendy, Robyn…. am I missing anyone?), my dearest friend Heather… you all add to my life by being interested enough to be here, to leave a kind word or thought. I thank you.. with tons of love in my heart. THANK YOU. <3
Until next time… xoxo
