Jean arrives

The best part of the day was that my friend, Jean Jones, arrived from Boston. I could not have survived grad school without this dear woman, and we had a chance to relive why at parent night tonight for Let’s Play Music!.

Jean came with me to see what the program was about, and off the bat we realized I had forgotten to bring a pen. Jean at first handed me a pen (just like old times!), and then when I kept dropping everything everywhere, she finally just took my papers and took notes herself–for me. I was sitting next to her feelings these surges of love and gratitude for my sweet friend while she diligently took notes on my behalf. I fondly recalled all of the times I borrowed her notes from class and all of the times she saved me by reminding me of upcoming events and what was going on when. She is the finest of human beings, and I am so grateful to have her as a friend.

I have one picture from earlier today. It’s of my mom and Mary snuggling in the morning. They were so cute that I had to get a picture.
