Oodles of gratitude for this lovely lady!  I met her for the first time after school on the swings at St. Joseph Catholic School.  I was in first grade and she was in second.  When my mom’s car pulled up, I climbed in and told her, “I think I just made a new friend.  She’s really, really nice.  I hope I see her tomorrow.”  And then she transferred (insert sad face).  We lived in a small town, though, and so we met up again in high school….and then we attended the same university.  Although we were studying in different areas of the university, we quickly realized we knew A LOT of the same people…thus dinner groups formed and adventures were had and trips were planned and craziness ensued.  My favorite trip to NYC involves this woman and my first ever walk across the Brooklyn Bridge…and Rockefeller Center at Christmas time…and a little Thai restaurant in Greenwich Village and STICKMAN JONES!!  : )  We’ve stood by each other through thick and thin….laughed and celebrated each other’s joys and cried and listened to each other’s sorrows.  Love her and so grateful for her.
