Friend For The Day
I had someone over for lunch yesterday with all her FIVE kids. She moved into this new ward about the same time I did. I sat close to her at church on Sunday and neither one of us knew the other person was new, too. Upon finding out, I just blurted out the question and asked her over for lunch. Not like me. I always plan things out. Normally I would think...I should have her over. And probably think about asking her for months and probably never follow through. And if I did follow through, I would have asked at least a week in advance and stressed the rest of the week about cleaning my house and what to fix for lunch. It was such a relief to have someone over on short notice. I had less than 24 hours to stress about it. I couldn't scrub every bathroom with a toothbrush or even run to the store to pick up something for lunch. It was nice to have an excuse for everything not to be perfect.
It was also nice to have a friend for the day. Besides my time in Utah, I haven't visited with friends since May. Moving is so hard.
