Random Moments of Delight #19: Meet My BFF

This week’s delight came from a wonderful source, my BFF.
Meet Rebecca St Croix Martinez... my goofy soul sister.

Meet Rebecca St Croix Martinez… my goofy soul sister.

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!

BFF

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.

    It’s really nice to connect with her in a more active way. Texting daily is lovely, but working together will be enriching.

    Thank you above Mosswood Connections for the entry Road Trip Jealousy. It is a wonderful post about the joy (and humorous not so joys) of going on road trips with family. I love the post but am unable to comment on it. It is a great read and I hope you join in again and comment here to let me know how to log in to your blog space. Also, don’t forget to link back to this post so others can share in the fun, it’s part of the challenge guidelines.

    How fun! That is wonderful… I’m sure we’ll be doing the same when we get together. Right now it’s lots of texts and emails and spreading laughter over the virtual halls.

    What a priceless gift! My BFF and I learned to blog together, mostly poking and hoping and one or the other of us getting lucky, occasionally. Now blog-talk is a big part of our 4-hour lunches.

    Oh my gosh!!!! I have (happy) tears rolling down my cheeks!!! We have so many wonderful and fun memories! Even the not so good memories seem to have happy laughs because you were there with your wonderful humor and love. What would I have done without you? I am so humbled that you shared your talent for putting together a beautiful blog for me and that you believe in me! Thank you, thank you! I’m feeling so amazingly lucky to have met you (it was destiny!) and even though we live too far away now – we have and will never lose our special soul sister connection! I LOVE you!!! I miss you!!! xxooxxoo

    Thank you Justine! Just wanted to let you know to try commenting from Chrome now. I put up a little thing on my blog that pops up to ask if you will accept cookies. Perhaps if you say yes that’ll do the trick. Thanks for joining in again this week! I’ll be heading over to read in just a sec.
