I have found it to be so encouraging!

This weekend my sisters and I were talking late into the night. This often happens when Rich and Sarah come down for the weekend. It is a time for us to catch up on everything and share what we've been learning, how we've been... it seems so many things can happen from one weekend to the next!
Any way tho! There we all were sitting around the living room about midnight, when we heard creaking coming from the hall upstairs. We all went deathly silent and listened for where the creaks were going...they seemed to be coming from Dad and Mom's room and were moving down the hall now. Uh Oh! We were about to be found out. The creaks came half way down the stairs and suddenly stopped... had we heard wrong?? We all turned in our seats and looked towards the stairway... there is a slight bend up our stairs at the landing and we can't see around it from the living room, but as we looked we almost had to rub our eyes and look again. Then we started to laugh... "Mama? "
There she was peering around the corner and smiling at us. It was so funny we couldn't help ourselves, she looked so sweet and funny just standing there peeking around at us.
Mama came down the stairs and joined Sarah, Liz and I, and I think we had one of the funnest and funniest talks we have all had in ages! We laughed so hard our sides ached! Sar' and Mom had Liz and I in fits with their pregnancy stories. How funny it can be! I don't think we've all sat and laughed that way for months! It was a special, girly time for us with our Mama. She is so wise and fun and darling! I love her so! :D And I'm so thankful for her! and while I'm at it, I love those sisters too! What a blessing to have so many built in best friends! :D Any ladies who haven't done it already I would encourage you to make your sisters and Mom your dearest friends! Maybe it takes a while, but its so worthwhile! After all! Who knows you the best! :D
