To my Becca, or to me, Becka...

Oh my Becka!!! I love you so much. We talked for 2 HOURS AND 37 MINUTES the other day!!! That for sure was the longest phone conversation we have ever had. Way to go us. I loved our "date". It was by far the best ever. (Say it: "Go Sox!!")

You are such a special person to me. I love that we have been friends so long that I can't remember us not being friends. I love that no matter what is going on in my life, no matter when the last time we talked was, I can always pick up the phone and find you. I am so thankful that I can always count on you and know that you will point me back to the Lord and the Word.

I love looking back and seeing how our friendship has grown and changed over so many years. I have so many memories - happy and not so happy - and so many things that I am thankful to have experienced with you.

I don't know why I like to misspell your name, but it just looks right to me. I don't know why you never say anything, but you don't, and I kind of love that. It is like my special name for you. Weird huh?

I am so thankful that you are the one that has walked through SO many things with me...some that I am sure you thought would never end. (I wondered the same thing too.) I am thankful that I get to watch you and Mike do married life. I love watching you (from afar) be a Mommy. You are a blessing and an encouragement to me. I want you to know that again. I love that now we get to share blogging too.

You have been such a sweet blessing to me since Saturday. I want you to know that. I love you!! Kiss your boys for me!! (Except Mike...just tell him HI when he gets back on Monday!!!)

"There's Only ONE October!!"

So I have a little secret...kind of.

Unless you really know me, or you spend A LOT of time with me, you would probably never guess that I adore baseball...Especially if the Red Sox are playing. Recently, one of my co-workers said to me, " I never would have guessed that you were interested in baseball the first time I met you." It was funny that she said that, but didn't really surprise me. Apparently, I don't have the "I love baseball" girl kind of air. Not sure exactly how I come off the first time people meet me, but apparently it doesn't scream baseball...

All of that to say, the Red Sox are rocking post-season baseball. Their last four games have been great, even the one they lost. There have been extra innings and runs made on 3-2 counts galore. It has been beautiful. I can't wait to see the American League Championship Series and then the World Series start. I can't wait to see the Red Sox running onto the field with the 2008 World Series trophy in hand. I am excited about the games ahead and the wins ahead. So fun!!

There are other things I love about October too...Like the fact that it is finally 95 degrees and not 105 degrees here in Texas. I like that I know at somepoint in the future, I will be able to wear long sleeves and dream about wearing scarves. I like that Christmas is closer. I like that soon it will be cool enought to turn off the ac...which means smaller electric bills. Which is always beautiful.

There is only one downside to this fall, and all the GREAT things in contains. I have to get a flu shot this year. I have NEVER gotten a flu shot....I have had the flu once, a million (or ten) years ago...Not in high school, not in college did I ever get the flu, but this year, I have to. I hate shots!!! So, we will see how it goes...I better not get sick after getting the shot.

Happy Fall
