After high school...Chris and I drifted in and out of each others lives, until I started selling Mary Kay. Chris at the time was a stay at home mom looking for something she could do and still be with her kids. Low and behold....Mary Kay was a good fit for her. Me....not so much. She went in....and I went out and 25+ years later....she is still in!
In recent years Chris has been a God-send to my life showing up at the ER several times (once in the middle of the night) when she knew David had been taken in. She even made sure Z had a wonderful 4th of July last year when David was having seizure issues and was in the hospital. She brought us a complete Thanksgiving dinner a couple of Thanksgivings ago when David had surgery and she is one of the few people that I know that if the bottom were falling out of my life....she would be one of the first there to pick up the pieces. And Chris's kindness goes way beyond me. I constantly talk to people that Chris has helped, whether it has been some generous act or just her taking a minute to talk to someone when they need it most. This is just Chris.
So on that note.....here is hoping that I have no more days like yesterday and that your Monday is bright, cheerful and full of summer fun!
