This week’s delight came from a wonderful source, my BFF.
Our relationship is and has been filled with moments of delight through the years. BUT, she now lives two hours away from me (I moved away two years ago) and… well … I miss her!
We met 12 years ago at California State University, Bakersfield. I was the administrative analyst for the dean of the school of science and math and she was applying to work in our office. I hired her (OK, so maybe the dean had a little say in it). That began days (and years) full of delight sitting in the office next to her laughing back and forth (yes the fun spilled out into the hallways and people loved the happy office).
It hadn’t even been two weeks when we realized we were soul sisters. You know, the kind of bond that happens mysteriously, yet so strongly you know it in your essence. We have been amazing friends ever since. We’ve shared everything from idiotic co-workers to huge life happenings (I lost my husband … she had breast cancer – 4 year survivor now!).
I have all sorts of photos of us at fun office celebrations, girl’s nights out, birthday lunches and of course dressing up for Halloween!
Rebecca started studying art when we were still working together. What a delight to share that with her (I have a degree in studio art). I absolutely love the pop art renditions she did of the two of us.
This week I am over the top with delight because I made her a BLOG! It all came together with magical serendipity. She is a budding children’s author, illustrator and self publisher (Crying Girl Press) and is just now beginning to look into her social media options. When I found out she wanted to blog, I let her know I’d be thrilled to design her a website, host her on my self-hosting platform, and even give her her own domain name for Mother’s Day. Who wouldn’t want their BFF as their blogging buddy?
Let me introduce you to Rebecca St Croix at Crying Girl Press (here):
It’s great to bring her into the blogging community. I know she will just love all of my friends here and make many new ones. I invite you to follow her as she gets the hang of blogging on WordPress.
Blogging with my best friend will be so delightful. My heart is just brimming with joy as we start creatively playing together. Big happy smile sigh.
