Lilly

I

I first met Lily back at the Las Vegas Institute when I was 21 years old .there is so much I want to say in this post and I don't know if the words will be adequate for what I feel inside.  Our friendship started with a simple ride home for Lilly and Jesse -little did I know that the little ride home would change my life. This picture here is of the LDS humanitarian Center and Salt Lake City. I remember my sorority advisor and Linda had asked me to be a friend and kind of be her sidekick during our trip to Salt Lake. Lily has been a big part of my blog because she's always been there we've always done things together just as best friends would do. So it's really hard for me to write down in words how I feel about Lillys life and now that she's no longer here.

Mine and Lily's friendship has had our ups and downs .But it reminds me  of my relationship with my grandma Josie . My Grandma would call me every day and we would talk about nothing and sometimes that kind of irritated  me. A typical phone call would go like this:  Hey Lily whats up? Lilly : nothing, how are you ? Me : I'm fine how are you ? Lilly: good and then I would reply is there anything you needed she would say no and in her Lily cheerfulness voice thing well got to go talk to you later I miss those phone calls now.

Lilly was always the friend I went to for anything, because Lilly got me. That's what best friends do. It's okay to call several times a day... and for no purpose, LOL.  Lilly and I started tripping around early, whether it was some random outing on a Saturday night..Random trips to the strip (With several Lilly stories to share ;) Our first trip was to Disneyland
We went a lot of places... Cruises to Mexico..Education Week.. Women's Conference.. Time Out For Women and Tuachan and other places. Later I found out one of Lilly's last questions was what did you enjoy the most from this life? All my trips ☺️ was what she replied.
During Education Week Lilly sought out and found the General Primary President, she was super proud!
I have to add this one because this was probably one of her favorite experiences from our cruise if not the most! Swimming with dolphins. 















Hope.

I marked something off my bucket list. Attend a lantern lighting.... More later

July, August and September

So...I'm still in Pediatrics. Although I have moved to three different clinics. I'm stressed out!  I know  that new experiences  contain trials. And I'm grateful to have a job! I do enjoy it even though. I get stressed. Keep Calm Carry On, right? No big adventures... But here's some background to my photos. Finding Joy in the Journey...

July-
Went to see some fireworks...

Really?

Fortunately the clouds and rain paused enough to let the show go on!! Hooray��

I participated in a walk for a good cause with my coworkers

Lots of fun for a good cause!
Also participated in a flu shot clinic


Next...

My friend Maria invited me to come to my second concert this summer- NKOTB!!!!

Dreams do come true!!! I was a New Kid fanatic as a teen, I never saw their show. It was awesome! ��
I think the concert hall was filled with more 30 ish people ....but I saw some people in their 50's..what?!!

Then came August...

Sonja came down and we got to visit!






Finally Made it to Tule Springs!! Last time I had been.... eight!

We had rain . And after rain comes Rainbows. And I think of hope with Rainbows ❤️

Got invited to a water park  Cowabunga Bay- last time I went- umm??? High School? It was fun...but
Getting Old Sucks!!! And Sunburns? They totally suck! When I do something, I do it good.

Then September...
Remembered my Moms birthday

And... It's canning time!!!



This was my friends box- I had help this year!! Well see the green lid jars? That was freezer jam.. Not processed.. Forgot to put in the freezer!! Ugh!!
