Friends Day

Yesterday was a day for friends.

 Becca and I met for coffee at Norms, the place to be in town.

I have known Becca and her family since she was six years old.  Her older sisters were our children's babysitters, and when she was old enough, she also babysat our kids.  Our kids' favorite sitter because she would bring a bag full of goodies!  And our Mindy was a flower girl in Becca's wedding.

More recently, Becca has been our Children's Ministry Director at our church and I was the Nursery Director.  Now, we are both "ex-directors".  Becca and her husband are taking on a new position at Ponca Bible Camp, a real answer to all our prayers for their family.  I am so excited for them!

After saying our good-byes (they move away this weekend!), I ran to Wichita for some shopping and time with more friends! 

I picked up Debbie.  Debbie had an accident on a bike and has to be in a sling for a few weeks.  She can't drive so she hung out with me - to a restaurant and several stores.

We went back to her house - I never knew that you can get virtual games for your cat! 

Then I went on to the airport to welcome a friend home from Peru with her 2 new children!  There were several others there to greet them also.

 Part of the new family (minus 2 older girls) - finally all together!

The day was not over.  In the evening I had a meeting with all my older friends to plan this coming year's Mom 2 Mom ministry we have at church.

A blessed day with special friends!
