First off let me apologize for my lack of friends layouts in this month's garden. I really had high hopes for scrapping a ton this month. With a theme so awesome I was sure I could bust a few pages out. There's my husband - my bff. I could do several pages on him. I could do some pages on the boys' friends. I certainly have a lot of pictures of them. And of course I have my own friends to scrap. I have been very blessed with really great friends and I really wanted to do at least a few pages about them. Unfortunately, my life has left me with zero time to do anything other than what is absolutely necessary. Eat, sleep, work, shuttle the kids off to school or baseball or soccer or karate. Its been a very challenging few weeks to say the least.
Ironically, it is my friends who have gotten me through this rough patch. They email - "How are you Lisa? Im worried. Check in when you can." They call "Dude, where are you? Call me." They offer to watch my kids in order to ease my load. They let me vent when my head feels like its going to explode. They are in fact amazing and I truly dont deserve the kindness and understanding they give me. But they lift me up for sure. They give me little bursts of energy to keep on putting one foot in front of the other and tackle all that needs to be done. Its like that old Beatles song "I get by with a little help from my friends."
