Some comfortable things I love...
~being snuggled up with my girls and/or hubby
~sheets with a high thread count that are so soft I can't stand myself
~these gaucho maternity pants that were hand-me-downs that I wear almost every day now (thankfully there are two pairs of medium and large!)
~my Aasics running shoes that I bought for my breast cancer walk last October; I'll never buy another brand of running shoes again. E.V.E.R.
~my flip flops from Eddie Bauer; I'll never wear another brand unless I'm forced to
~my glider rocker that I'm praying will get LOTS of use come August
These are just a few on my list. But wanna know something that I really treasure?
My comfortable friendships.
These two precious ladies came to my house with their children for a while today. This is Shannon and Shana. (I wrote about them here last year.)
It had been a long time since we had just been together. Shannon is about to have her baby (her third child, a surprise) any day now, and was a good sport about having her picture taken since she didn't fix her hair to come over. (See, she's comfortable, too!) Shana, cute as always, has one year old Sawyer who is absolutely adorable and crawls like a gorilla...too cute! (he was the first baby I held after Grady went to heaven)
Their friendship is just comfortable. There is no other word to describe it.
I didn't worry about my house being perfect. I pointed and they helped themselves in my kitchen. Shannon loves blankets, and after lunch she grabbed one and snuggled up on my sofa. I'm very blessed to have them, and other friends in my life, whom I'm completely comfortable with, almost like they're my sisters. Just to laugh and be myself, not worrying about being judged. Just being real and honest like we've always been. They were part of my "group" that I blogged about here.
I'm thankful and blessed, and I don't take it for granted for one second!
