I’m thankful for…
…this crazy book of memories.
The cold November weather has forced me indoors which in turn has forced me to putter around my mounds of stuff, still unpacked or un-put-away. I came across this magnificent, funny, and maybe little embarrassing book of memories that my friend Jill made for me for my 40th birthday.
This treasure contains ticket stubs to concerts that Jill and I went to, pictures of us with Mandy Patinkin and Jeff Dunham (before he was famous), verses from songs I liked, the names of places we used to hang out in, memories of the Blizzard Party of ’93 that Brian was invited to (I had only met him a few weeks earlier), excerpts from letters I had written to her when we were younger, and so much more. Some if it makes me laugh, some of it makes me cringe, but it all makes me thankful for the memories and having such a wonderful and thoughtful friend who took an enormous amount of time thinking this up and putting it together.
