Grateful for Friends

Today I'm grateful for friends. We really have incredible friends. As soon as my dear friend Cindy found out about what was going on she invited us over for dinner. She, her husband and kids gave us an escape tonight that we really needed. Her husband made us a yummy dinner and then the four adults laughed at ourselves while we played 80's and 90's Trivial Pursuit. I promise that I will never forget "Ben Stein" again! And Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my favorite movies. I can't believe I didn't get that one!

Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. That still makes me laugh. Cindy even got me my very favorite - Baskin Robbins Jamoca Almond Fudge Ice Cream Cake. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys really did get our minds off of everything tonight!

I have other friends who've let me cry on the phone to them and have prayed for me. Others who have offered help and support. I'm just overwhelmed. Even people I haven't met in real life but only know through online groups have offered hugs, prayers and support. And here's the thing, I hate asking. I hate it. I want to be the one offering support especially since a lot of these people supported me through the last 2 years. I feel like a broken record. But, I'm choosing to be grateful and I really am grateful for all my friends who have such big hearts.

I still do not know who "The English Beat" are, or what song I should know of there's...?

For the official record, to be maintained here on this website for all perpetuity...the score was:
Guys 21, Girls 17
(really only 14, if it were not for some himts given to keep the estrogen in the game)

Please come by to play and eat anytime...!!!

Jason has been on an 80's kick ever since he read your post.

We let the guys win. We felt sorry for them. Right, Cari? RIGHT?!?!?

Cari said...

Of course we let them win - we wouldn't have wanted to bruise their fragile male egos! ;) Or maybe we're just really bad at remembering useless pieces of information from 20 years ago? LOL

Hey Cari. I'm pretty useless lately. I have thought about you and prayed for your family. I will continue to do so!

Gotta love Jason and Cindy!

Just watched the clip--what a hoot! Makes me want to watch the movie again.
