The day before Thanksgiving my good friend Katie came over. She spent a good chunk of the day with me. We baked cookies, had dinner when Trav came home, and talked and talked and talked.
Katie is a delight. She's intelligent, devout and funny. I have such respect for her and am thrilled she's a friend. This is a woman who knows how to give fraternal correction.
She graduates soon and will be looking for a job - my selfish hope is she will find one close to me. (Although we do have excellent schools in the area.)
When she left I felt completely refreshed - like I had been needing to be around someone who gets me and every little Catholic quirk I have.
