I had a blast on Saturday. Another friend of mine tied the knot. While this time there was a DJ instead of a band, we still filled the floor and danced the night away. I was disappointed they didn’t have the Time Warp, but we did do the Funky Chicken. There was laughter and joy, the most important things at any gathering.
Last week, I had a great time at Creative Collision, the monthly get together of my local arts group, Ames C.art. I wasn’t planning on going since I had a headache, but I’m quite happy I did. We laughed, we shared, and we had great drinks. I left feeling energized about the rest of the month – and I had an offer to borrow a sewing machine.
Two weeks ago, I went roller skating for the first time in years. My friend, my sister, and my kiddo all drove thirty miles outside of town to put on wheels and skate around a rink. It reminded me so much of my hometown rink, now buried for years under the Super Walmart parking lot. I was ecstatic that I remembered how to skate, and I loved watching my sister learn the ins and outs of a rink.
I am beyond thankful for my friends. They are my family, and they welcome me and mine without question.
