One Week From Today.

I get to go to my annual Scrap Weekend. This is my FOURTH year, and it's a favorite tradition. There are a few regulars, and each year there is a couple of newbies. We chat, and eat, and scrap, and sleep, and laugh, and cry, and our wells are filled.

There is something to be said for great friendships. I just read a book "A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity" by Bill O'Reilly, and one of the things he talked about was friends that keep you grounded. His father told him, you'll be lucky if you make five good friends in a lifetime. If it wasn't for the military, I think he'd be right. But, thanks to years of moving, I've met the most amazing women. As I am about to move, once more, I am so greatful for my Fort Meade Friends, who I know, no matter where I go, I will get to see at least once a year.

Are you ready girls???? I am SO READY!!!!

Look there go the popular girls for their scrap booking. just kidding...i'm only slightly bitter at never getting an invite. no really, i'm fine. :D


I'm reading The Tipping Point and I noticed that the military does really change your view on friends. We are lucky to be able to meet and keep really good friends that a person living in one place their whole life wouldn't get. It's a special blessing and I am so thankful for the wonderful friends I've been able to make. Even if they never asked if I wanted to go for a scrap booking weekend. :P No really, I'm fine. :D
