  • Seeing new emails from old friends in my inbox
  • Being better able to communicate in Spanish....even though I have a long way to go
  • My bi-weekly (more or less) coffee times with new friends
  • Being pregnant....in spite of all the accompanying maladies
  • Snuggling with my honey on cool Bolivian nights
  • Being 40-something
  • Seeing new emails from new friends in my inbox
  • Our Vontage phone
  • Being a missionary
  • Pomegranates
  • Hearing Joe study the Bible with the teens

Whenever I was pregnant and it was going a bit rough some how it was reassuring if I told myself that someday I would have a conversation with this being inside of me.

Your boys are great conversationalists too. I imagine that they get that from both their mom and their dad. Talking with you guys is like a treat, I always leave from talking with you feeling like I just ate a big piece of pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream. Satisfaction!

I am so glad we are friends.

Much love!

The sweetness of this list is why so many of us, many who don't even know you all that well in person, hold you dear to our hearts!:)
