God had just put my friend Melody on my heart…and I thought, “Hmm, I should look her up on facebook to see if she has a page.” The VERY next day, I received a friend request from Melody!! Don’t you love how God works!?
We started chatting and the long and the short of it was: I needed to see her! I needed to hug her neck! I wanted to catch up face to face!
Melody found some amazingly priced plane tickets and just a few short weeks after we “found each other” again, she and her two sweet babies are here for a visit!
We’ve had a wonderful time. Ooh, but did I mention that I have laryngitis and Melody has plugged ears? It’s made for some interesting conversation times, that’s for sure. :)
I’ve loved meeting her kids (ages 2 and 3). I’ve loved being able to catch up on what all has been going on with her since we last saw each other several years ago. (She happened to be hanging out at my house the night my water broke when I was pregnant with Justus. Yeah, we go way back!)
Today was Melody’s birthday, so of course there was lots of celebration food!
She requested biscuits and gravy for breakfast. My family cheered.
My boys were being awfully quiet after breakfast (always reason for concern). Turns out, they were upstairs with the door closed working on a special birthday song for Melody. It was oh so goofy…and oh so sweet. (Yes, mostly it was goofy.)
We “picnicked” inside during lunchtime since the weather turned out nasty, and of course we had pretzels.
We served up some yummy cake and homemade ice cream after lunch. Don’t you love all the pictures of a sweet little girl in pink ruffles and pig tails? You don’t see many of those kind of pictures around here, do you?
I’ve loved our visit…and I’m so thankful for how God orchestrated all the details to make it possible. God is so good.
