Yesterday I had a last-minute guest. My lovely friend Marie (who lives many states away) was visiting her mom in my part of the country. Marie was kind enough to drive the extra two hours to my place so she and her sweet little baby-girl Coral could cheer me up with a slumber party.

It was a very nice distraction.

We turned on our Tivoed (Is that right? Tivoed? Tivo-d? Tivod? It isn't even a Tivo brand Tivo, it's just an AT&T standard issue DVR so I suppose it isn't even relevant) episode of Glee but we got too distracted with chit-chat and never even finished the episode. This chit-chat went on until 2 AM.

A good friend is hard to find. I'm glad to have such a gem.

(And notice how Coral and Alice are looking at each other? Should we go ahead and order their BFF lockets now?)


It's been a week since I started miscarrying.

Thank you much for your love and supportive comments. I've read them all over and over, and will probably continue to do so for quite a long time. I wish I could give each one of you a hug.


  1. Ha! BFF lockets are definitely in order for those two!!
    I'm so glad you got such a special visit. Good friends are a blessing! Hugs to you, Erin. I'm still praying lots of peace and joy for you. :)

  2. Oh those two are so cute! That's wonderful you got a chance to have a lovely time with a friend, and it's fabulous and inspiring to see you still finding the beauty and optimism in life, even as you heal. Hugs to you.

  3. I'm glad you're doing okay. And I'm glad you had such lovely distractions! There's a lot of cute happening there.

  4. A really good friend is hard to come by when you grow up... it honestly warms my heart that you have one!


  5. Thank God for good old friends.

  6. Oh, those sweet baby girls! They look like they need those lockets asap :O)

    And yes, friends like that are to be treasured. I am so happy that a treasure of yours was able to be with you at this time.

    You have been in my thoughts and prayers.

    Blessings, Susan

  7. It IS very sweet how the girls are looking at each other. Very sweet indeed.

    I'm so happy you were able to spend time with a good friend, by the way. Good friends are worth celebrating, for sure.
