I Have Amazing Friends
The flowers above were brought to me by the Young Women's presidency. There were 3 flowers- one for each of Jeni's children. They knew that my concern at the time was for them and how to help them.
My fabulous friend and neighbor, ShawnandShellbi Stika came by to give us popsicles. She explained that her grandmother was never very wealthy, but her house was a hub for company and social visits, and she never let anyone leave her house without some kind of edible treat. One of the most popular was popsicles. It was a cheap way to show people that she cared about them and wanted them to be happy. (This reminds me a lot of my own Grandma Wallace and her rice crispy treats.) At her funeral, a room full of grown adults mourned her loss and celebrated her life with popsicles. My sweet friend came to share comfort with us in her own personal and lovely way. I am so blessed.
