catching up

Today my friend Karla came over for coffee. Sounds like something very ordinary, except we literally have not sat and visited for years. I sang at her wedding over 20 years ago, and our girls were very good friends when they were little, they went to preschool together - lots of memories!

It was so good to sit and visit, ( of course I took a picture for day 10 in my Daily December album). Chris and Karla are Foster parents and she brought their little guy along. I soooo respect what she is a complete sacrifice and I pray that God will continue to bless them as they give of themselves. I was in a foster home for 11 months, so foster parents have a special spot in my heart!
I sat down yesterday and put together a few more pages in my Daily December are a couple of the pages. I'm really enjoying this really is an instant gratification type of project - that's what I'm all about!!

Day 7.............................
Day 5............................

I finally got the downstairs decorating done and cleaned up by bedtime Monday night. Now I just need to get busy and do the tree upstairs. Em and I are planning on doing that after school today.

I love it when I get to catch up with someone I have not seen in a while, how fun!
My question though is why are you hiding your Christmas tree in the picture?
I can't wait to see the picture of the kids at their play in your December book. ;)
Have a great weekend!!!

Isn't it great to get together with someone who shares a spot in your past? Makes you remember things you thought you forgot!
Praise God for foster parents! So glad you were taken care of!
