Good Friday

It's hard to believe that it's almost Easter, especially when I look out to see drizzle, an occasional snow flake, and not to mention, it's freezing out there! BUT, it is West Texas and this isn't the first cold Easter I've experienced here.

Today, Good Friday, has been just that. It was nice to sleep in this morning and then I was joined by my two children. We layed in bed and watched TV for at least an hour. Of course, I don't remember much about what we watched because I was too busy thinking about each one of them, and thanking God for them and just enjoying the moment.

I also had lunch with an old friend today. Isn't it amazing that when your are truely friends with someone, it doesn't matter how many miles seperate you or how much time seperates your last coversation, when you meet up, you can pick up like there was never a seperation? That's how it was. She had not seen Clarissa since she was 10 months old! We had a wonderful time and I thoroughly enjoyed talking about her new "gift" that is due in August. Once Clarissa found out that Stefanie was expecting a girl, she was ready to see the baby.......right then and there.

It has been a good Friday on this Good Friday. I'm thankful for family and friends, but in the spirit of the season, I'm thankful for Jesus and for what happened many years ago on that cross! Happy Easter to all!
