Flowers and friendship

Yesterday after a day of grocery shopping and canceled swim classes again, ugh... I had to hurry home to get to my first aide class and CPR. I got the kids a baby sitter for the afternoon and was feeling that exhausted Mommy syndrome coming on especially since we had spent the morning grumpy due to our 2nd day or rains/storms here in the midwest. I think it's been a record year for rain so far here, it's unbelieveable. Well, to make a long story short sitting in my little wagon was package that said Pro Flowers on it. My first thought was Yipee!!! the DH got me flowers. How thoughtful! I had hinted the other day about a nice bouquet of flowers. Then much to my surprise they were from my best friend Sam. I was so happy! They are beautiful. I just love them and if was just what I needed to get me through the rest of the day.

I met Samantha in North Dakota when we were stationed at Minot AFB together. I think it was one of those friendships that started pretty much from the get go... we have kids the exact same age, we are about the same age and we were both SAHM who had a career prior to motherhood. However she does teach classes online so I guess you could consider her more of a WAHM. Anyway, we had a lot in common. She even likes to bake! We just hit it off. I couldn't be more thankful for her friendship. So this post is dedicated to her. She knows just what I need even though we're long distance friends now. Thanks Sam!

It even came with a box of chocolates. Friends know when you need chocolate!

Have a great day and don't forget to do something special for you friend.
