gratituesday : interrupters

i like to be flexible.  i like to be sporadic... fly by the seat of my pants (so to speak).  i love it when others do too.  what i REALLY love?!  when "old" friends drop in with just a moment's  notice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

i had a friend come over today, i shall call her "holli", with her hubs, how about "jake"? and babe, we'll just protect her identity altogether not even giving her an incognito name. 
i was so so soooo excited to see her that i let out a squeal.  i found out she was in-state just yesterday.  i'm so glad she stopped in.  i hadn't met her sweet baby doll yet and i hadn't seen her hubby in years...  she lives a bit away. 
she's a friend from high school.  a best one.  i gave her a little forewarning that the house was a little disarray... but honestly she's the type of friend that wouldn't care anyway.  she knows me.  she loves me.  she's not a judger-of-me-er.  as they were leaving they kept apologizing for interrupting our quiet time...  seriously?!  i would LOVE IT for her to interrupt quiet time any time it works for her.  so "holli" if you're out there... if you read my blog... come interrupt again sometime soon.  bring your hubs.  bring your babe.  and interrupt all you want!!!
thank you, God, for putting interrupters in my life.  they make me happy.  they make me squeal.  i love them!  i'm grateful for the "holli"s and "jake"s and "baby h+j"s in my life.  those that will take a little extra time to hang out when life is busy and full of other things to do...  God, YOU are good.  You know i needed that today!

and... she told me she read my blog.  <3
i wish i would've taken some pictures!!!!!!!!! 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
