VBS is over. It was a great time with the kids. Our theme this year was 'The Egypt Files' from Answers In Genesis. They always have a great set of materials and the message during the week.

I think I needed this week just to relax after running for the last 2 weeks. I am also thankful that I didn't have to work last week so that I could concentrate on VBS.

Today I went with Laurel down to Pittsburgh for her treatment. I always have such a nice time when we spend the day together, even if it is sitting in a hospital while she is hooked to an IV.

We have also gotten in trouble a time or two while there. One time her brother Kevin and I went with her. Kevin is hilarious and works in the education field so he always has a good story or two or ten to tell us. Well he got to telling a story and we started giggling and there was another patient who did not think we were amusing at all and shushed us. I swear we weren't being loud.

The time always seems to fly by even when we are there for several hours. We talk and laugh and then talk and laugh some more. We talk every day and sometimes several times a day but they are usually short conversations unless one of us needs to let loose about something. So when we get together the conversation never stops. You would think we hadn't seen each other in years.

Thanks Laurel for letting me go with you. I consider it a privilege that you allow me to go with you.

You are such a good friend, Stacy. I imagine there are many around you who feel so blessed to know you. You just take some time to relax and do nothing. :)

Believe me, I am the one who is privileged or should I say blessed to have a friend like you.

I'd say you're both lucky.

Good luck w/ your treatments, Laurel.
