So thankful for friends…

This week has been a rough week.  A close family friend passed away suddenly, and Chase and I made the trip home to Oklahoma to attend Carla’s funeral.  I didn’t know what I was going to do with Chase…I just didn’t want to have to wrestle him to keep him still, and I knew that there was no way he would do well.  He is three…he lives to run and scream.  I was beyond stressed…I just didn’t know what I was going to do.  So I asked my precious friend Melinda from Bloggin It From the Burbs if she knew of anyone who could help me…and she came to my rescue.  She has the sweetest spirit of anyone you would ever meet, and I am blessed to call her my friend.  Melinda, you are a one in a million, and I am so thankful for you!!! 

She is also an unbelievably fantastic photographer…she is OUTSTANDING.  If you are in Oklahoma, you need to look her up and set up a session pronto.  She took some pictures of Chase and Beau playing, and they are so good!  For me, it is proof that even on the saddest of days you can find joy.  Thank you Melinda!!!
