My friend, Jackie, gave me a sweet plaque for our new house (when we finally get one). The quote reads "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf." I hadn't heard that quote before and I really love it. I can't wait to put it up in place where I can read it every day. Isn't great when a friend knows exactly the right thing to do for you?
Tomorrow afternoon, I get to say goodbye to a few more friends. My friends from Ponca City are driving an hour each way just to come hang out with me for a little while. I'm so excited to get to see them. When I was teaching in Ponca City, I used to spend time every day with these ladies. More than any of my other friends, they got to know who I really am. They are the kind of friends who are able to pick up right where we left off even though it's been a long time since we've been together. Those are the best kind of friends! I can't wait to laugh until we cry into our chips and queso tomorrow!
In the meantime, I probably should get back to packing and cleaning. I've got two of the kids' bedrooms done! Only one more to go. Once we get through that last kids' room, I think the packing will go much faster. My kids just have way to much stuff!
Have a great Sunday!
