ok.. so.. it's not always about the mother.. but sometimes it just has to be. rosie (my fellow-ette mother of two) is one of those mommas that brightens a room.. she will also go WAY out of her way to find the right pie.. she inspires, tries, fails, laughs and laughs and laughs about it all. this motherhood busy-ness has put closeness and distance in a friendship that may have faded. i know that will not happen to us... let our friendship steep in time like medicinal chinese tea. those are the best kinds of friendships right?
