My friend Beth, who was also my staff teammate at UCLA, came down to visit a couple of weekends ago. It was a great time spending time on the beach, drinking coffee in the morning, and lots of talking. :) It was a blessing for me to have her get to come. She and her husband have lived up in Athens, GA these past two years, which has been great because it has meant Joe and I have been able to see her and John a number of times. I am grateful for your friendship Beth!
