Last night I went to visit a GF. I've known her for over 20 years (Yikes!). I taught her in Sunday School when she was 12. Now she's all grown up, married, with 6 children, the youngest of which is almost 2 1/2. Her 4 yo son is scheduled to have heart surgery next week. He had his first surgery just days after birth when they found that he had a defect. I hadn't taken the kids a treat in awhile so I packed up some vanilla ice cream and toppings and took that with me. The kids were very excited! You would have thought they hadn't ever had any before. While I was chatting with mom, they were creating a Thank You card for me. When I was leaving later, 2 of the girls sneaked this in my purse and I didn't find it until this morning - signed by all of the kids. It really touched me. This is such a special family and proud to call them my friends.
