me this past Saturday. She & I used to work together (ok, I was her supervisor ~ we ended up good friends) @ MPR. She came over to see the end result of my remodel & spend time here just taking a breather from 3 kids & a chance to talk. While we were discussing art for some reason I got very teary. J was soo understanding & her words to me stood out; something I will remember. "Linda, you've been thru a trial of fire & those tears I consider to be holy water." I feel blessed to have that one friend left (here in town) with such wisdom & words of comfort. I may cross stitch that & hang it in my bedroom. AND it applies to many of us here.
