I get by with a little help from my friends.

Today started out normal enough.

I attended a relaxing Yoga practice that rid me of the discomfort that had been building up in my back. It was refreshing and energizing and greatly appreciated.

Afterward I got to visit with a close friend who blew me away with a thoughtful and beyond-generous gift. A gift that brought tears to my eyes and a greater understanding to my heart that sometimes others are indeed very aware of my personal struggles. And they're aware of them because they are in tune with the Spirit and aren't afraid to act on the promptings they receive. Just thinking about it makes me weepy again.

How could the day get any better, you ask? Well, I'll tell you! I also got to visit with an old roommate for a few hours while Aspen napped. There's just something so wonderful about spending time with someone you're so comfortable with. I almost didn't put on any make up for our chat fest because seriously, this girl has seen me a lot worse off than just bare-faced. Don't you just love friends like that? Friends who couldn't care less if you've showered or gotten all dressed up.

Wait for it, but this day keeps getting better. Since Kev has been working on the kitchen plumbing (oh, didn't you know? He's installing a garbage disposal and a DISHWASHER), I needed to make alternate plans for bathing Aspen. So I asked our neighbor and go-to boredom banisher Emilie if we could visit with her and take over her tub. That turned into visiting her husband at work, going to DSW and then letting Aspen spend ages playing with bubbles in a real big-girl tub. Highlight of her day, I'm sure.

Days like this remind me that I have AMAZING friends in my life and I need to do more to give back. I'll start by bringing a can of beans to Alissa's house tomorrow in a lame attempt to contribute to Sunday dinner. Which, of course, she invited us to after she lent her husband Matt to us all day to help Kev with the plumbing.

So I'm still in the red, aren't I?
