my friend lori
I have a wonerful friend named Lori who is one of the best people you would ever want to meet. I met her and her wonderful husband through Little League and I am so thankful they are a part our families lives.

I have written before about the problems our Little League has had in the last few years. You can read a little about that here. Lori was thrown into the center of the storm when she became our league President last year. She has withstood personal attacks that seriously make my blood boil. People have marveled at her ability to stand firm and do the right thing in the face of such adversity. As the result of her wonderful leadership our league is healing and growing and I am so thankful to her for that. Don't you wish your kids belonged to a league where the President was praying for your child and seeking God's guidance in all areas? I am so thankful I do.

Not only is Lori our league president, but she has four sons ages 4-13, and a 20 hour a week job (plus her 20 hrs. a week or more of little league). She is truly a remarkable person.

Lori loves to scrap book but with life being so busy she hasn't really had the time. She enjoyed reading my blog so decided it might be fun to have her own. I am so excited that she has recently joined us all in blog land. If you get a minute go on over and visit her here. Leave her a comment and a little encouragement. You wont be sorry.

O.k. now you are going to make me cry...thanks for the kind words. Whenever I can't stand baseball anymore I quickly remind myself that you and I would have never met, our families would never have become friends. I am so thankful that God put us both in a place where we could meet and become best friends. I have had "best" friends before but, never like the relationship I have with you. I know that we will be friends for forever! Love you.
