Fabulous Friends

Years ago when we lived on the west side of town in Glendale, we made some really wonderful friends--the great thing is that they still are our wonderful friends, and mean so much to us. Tonight we got together for dinner and for visiting, and it was just the best night ever. I am so thankful for each of them, and the way they have blessed our lives...and for their continuing friendship and support. Truly the saying is right that says, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold." These friends are just the best.

So I'm putting a picture in. I have tried to edit it so I wouldn't have totally red eyes--but if I changed my eyes, my face went gray...and then you would worry that I wasn't feeling well, so you'll just have to look at me with my lovely red eyes. We went to dinner, and then we went to the Eliason's house (one of the couples), and just talked and laughed. It was a great evening. All the other couples have served missions for our Church--we would love to do that, but need to finish raising our children (or the one who's going to be left at home--our 13-year-old, Brady). It was just great to share experiences and feelings--and I think we all left, feeling so grateful for friendships that last through the years.

It's funny how much better I am feeling. The fact that we could be gone for 4 hours, and I not be totally exhausted is pretty miraculous. I walked today and worked out (just for 15 minutes--but that's something!) at the cancer center. I AM getting better! Yesterday was a pretty big day, so today I took it easier and rested more so that I could be ready for tonight. Anyway, that's about it from here for today. Love to all, Louise


  1. Sounds like such a fun evening! I am so glad you are feeling so good. I hope every day just gets better and better! :)


  2. Love all of those people! I'm so happy you all had a good time together and that you (Louise) had so much energy. You are on your way! =)

  3. What a great evening for us. Why do we wait so long in between these enjoyable times! Just looking at this picture I am reminded that all of these great men have been Bishops. What a privilege to know all of you!

  4. How wonderful you have kept in touch with all these wonderful people! We were friends way back then, too. But we have not done a good job keeping in touch since we moved to California. Some of that is to your credit, Louise, I know.

  5. I'm so glad you're doing well. It was delightful to sit by you and visit Wednesday night. Your sense of humor is so fun!
