Today Luke and I ventured out to meet my friend Carroll for lunch at Willowbend Mall. They have a play area that is a bit juvenile for Luke, but we could watch him from all angles and still chat.
Carroll is my sweet friend, that I met at Northwest Bible church, approx. 12+ years ago through the Women's Heart 2 Heart ministry. We were paired up and she was my mentor. She has 4 boys: John (builds custom homes) , David (just got married and is a lawyer/teacher), Andy (think he's selling cars) and Luke who is a highschooler at Highland Park highschool.
She and her husband Scott, own T Bar M Ranch in New Braunfels, as well as a camp on Lake Travis in Austin. We've kept in touch all these years. We've shared many good times and bad times over the years. She watched Luke for us while I was hospitalized. She's taken me to the Dr. when I was so sick earlier this year. She would visit me in the hospital, etc. Carroll is a beautiful person both inside and out. The wisdom I have gleened from her over the years is invaluable. She's always so joyful and is such an encouragement to me.
I love you sweet Carroll. Let's get together again soon. Thanks for the anniversary gift and lunch. Hey Carroll, beautiful "Joy" pendant, whereever did you find such a beautiful work of art???(wink)
Here are the pic's from our day at the Mall.
