Leigh asked that I be a guest poster on her blog This week. I wanted to talk about my friend Leigh ....
Leigh is definitely a special friend; she’s one of those people you want to have in your life forever. I met my friend Leigh back in my high school. Leigh was one of those girls that was easy to be friends with, always had a smile on her face and no matter where she was she would always speak to you…nothing like some of those stuck up girls you see or remember from high school. After graduation I never saw my friend Leigh again, not that I kept in touch with a lot of people that I graduated with.
It wasn’t until I moved to our great city almost four years ago with my lovely wife and kids that I saw my friend Leigh again, it had been about sixteen years. I had gone to some kind of meeting or presentation at the Elementary school and while sitting there I starter to look around the room and all of the sudden I saw this familiar face looking at me, it was my friend from high school, Leigh. Leigh still had that same smile I remembered from high school, I think she was surprised that I remembered her and knew her name right away. As we got to talking I realized that not only were our kids in the same class, but also she had married a guy we had graduated with and knew today he is referred to, BIG DADDY!. Even though it had been about sixteen years since I had seen Leigh and Big Daddy they both looked great and seemed very happy together, I was really happy to have ran into both of them. A few years have now passed since I got reunited with my friend Leigh and her lovely family, and I can honestly say that I thank God every day for that. My family and the her "Family circus" have become great friends, we occasionally have dinner together and our kids are now taking ballroom dancing together (thanks to my brother, The Mambo King, Fabian Sanchez). I would like to mention that I’m not the only person in my family that has enjoyed this reunion, my lovely wife Zinnia or as she is now called by the family circus, "Princess Warrior", has become a big fan of Leigh and her family, she now talks to Leigh more than I do. I would just like to end this post by saying that every person in the world should have a friend like Leigh, this girl is funny. Leigh is the only person that I have gotten voice messages from on my cell phone and I have actually saved them because she has made me laugh so hard, anytime I need a good laugh I go back and listen to her messages.
Leigh, not only are you a great friend, but you’re a wonderful mother, wife and daughter. Your parents raised a wonder girl and I know that they have to be proud of the woman you’ve become. I thank God for having you in my life.
