Around 10 am yesterday, I frantically Tweeted and got on Facebook in hopes someone would want to share their picks in this week's Need Read Greed. I guess I got caught up planning upcoming posts and kinda forgot about today. Oops! Sometimes Type-A(shley) can also be rather absent-minded. After sending out a desperate call for help, it was Kim DeMass to the rescue! This is just so like her, my friends. We originally met in Texas while our husbands were in pilot training together. Despite a rocky first encounter (I should share that story sometime; it's a fun one!), I absolutely adore her. You would be so lucky to know someone this sweet. Our friendship was an unexpected gift; she's so supportive and encouraging. She embraced me and all my awkwardness—I think that's what I appreciate most. She and her husband are the most genuine people you'll ever meet. I think Flyboy and I are still a wee-bit jealous we don't get to follow them from one military assignment to the next. And even though there's a 12-hour time difference between us, she came through for me yet again. I'm reminded how blessed I am to call her my friend. I could continue this gush fest for grafs, but it's instances like this that make me miss her even more.
