Takin' it way back to 1997, high school buddy. :)

ML, you're a treasure. You're everything about having a friend that is good.

"A friend is one to whom you can pour out the contents of your heart, chaff and
grain alike. Knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what
is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away

With you I'm thirteen again, but also thirty. I'm so lucky to have you still in my life. Your kindness is so unique. I trust you without a doubt. I respect your opinion so much. You're always supportive, never cruel. I admire you so much for how you face life and accept whatever God gives you, your head held high and a smile on your face even though I know you've faced more than your share of challenges. You're such a good person to have on my side. Such a proven friend and a blessing.

Thanks for a great dinner out last night. I hope you know how much you mean to me and how much I hope you're always in my life.

Modern day ML on my bulletin board at work, with the B man and C man.
(I think I need a new picture, since C is almost 4!)

There's nothing like a good dinner at Paesano's. Love you lots, friend!


  1. ML is one of my all time favorite people.

  2. ML, a very good lady indeed. Sweet post!

  3. You have no idea what that means to me. You have lifted my spirits and also brought a tear to my eye. You are a treasure to me as well and I am so thankful for our friendship. We have so many memories from 13 to 30-something and each one is written on my heart. The quote is beautiful. Thank you for being a forever friend. The yearbook picture made me laugh - haven't seen it in years. Love you too my dear friend!

    @Jon... thanks buddy. Feel the same about you!

  4. How can someone NOT love ML!? :) She is a dear friend to many!

    (on a sidenote: a little disturbed my "word verification" for this comment below is "mancest" - just don't sound right... hehe)

  5. Aaand just like that, the official meeting of the ML fan club is called to order! :)

    Thanks ML. :)

  6. She's just OK.

    (She knows I'm kidding)

  7. Aren't friends great!
    I was just at Paesano's on Friday night for a friend's birthday! Too funny!
    Hope you're having a great week!

  8. Seriously, thank you - all of you (even you, E! :) ). I was having a few rough days and this has totally touched my heart. I needed that!

  9. Aww!!! And E –– watch your tongue!

    ML –– great high school hair!
