A visit with friends

"Tears may come and go,
But there's one thing I know.
All my life you're a friend of mine.
You can depend on me.
I'll be fine...
'Cause you're a friend of mine."
                          -Clarence Clemens
 
 
I took a couple of days off this week to spend with Amber. I have been wanting to visit before the holidays were in full swing, so I headed to Florence on Wednesday afternoon. I arrived in time to help her teach the 4 & 5 year old class on Wednesday night. Thursday we did a little holiday shopping, wrapped presents and tried out her new juicer.
 
On Friday, Amber and I came back to Nashville in time to have dinner with some high school friends. Sherry was in Nashville for her mother's surgery, and Dawn was here as well. I'm a firm believer that one should never pass up the opportunity to spend time with friends, so we grabbed the chance and met up for dinner. It was wonderful to catch up on each other's lives and families. The hours flew by and before we knew it, it was almost midnight. We ended the night with promises to not let too much time go by before meeting again.

Thank God for girlfriends!

When i walked into my class tonite Davis asked "Where's the other teacher?" i explained you were visiting from Nashville but he seemed disappointed.

Oh, tell Davis hello - did he ever reveal his Christmas wish? He seems to want to keep that secret only for Santa.
