I'm not sure if any of you watched the show Touched By an Angel, but i remember watching it when i was little and wondering if angels really walked among us. This year, but mostly this week I learned that they do (note i've already started crying).

About 15 years ago i met a rather odd girl at the first day of Eaglette practice. Our "Big Sisters" sent us on a scavenger hunt to find out who they where. She found her final clue quickly, but my big sis chose take me on a wild goose chase (thank you kee kee. i still love you)! despite having to look forever, she never left my side, and even laid in the middle of Beltline with me!

Over the years we have been through our fare share of ups and downs. But some how we always seem to find our way back to each other. The last 10 months Umoh has been so helpful to me. giving me advice about pregnancy and delivery (although some of it scared the crap out of me), and answering all my questions. (Actually i ask her about a lot of medical stuff in general. I guess cause she is a nurse i assume she knows the answer to everything!!)

The past two weeks though she has really been supportive.
~Listening to my many gripes about pregnancy
~answering all of my delivery questions
~ helping me with my pumping (btw breastfeeding is a story in its self0
~and just being there

I cant begin to explain how thankful i am to have her. There is no way i would have made it through the past few days without her!

"Angels do exist but sometimes without wings.
We call them friends."


  1. "Once in a lifetime you find a friend who touches not only your heart but also your soul"....Ashley ever since I've met you, you've always been a ray of sunshine, someone I could count on, someone I could go to and trust. You will never know how much it meant to me when you came over by me as we sang the final song in will rogers follies as I cried because someone had stolen all the money I had raised in ticket sales (I was so sad) and held my hand--"A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart."~ Heather Pryor. You always had my back and I will never forget that. How could I ever forget that. There are some things in the past that I wish I could change and had done different but I know the past is exactly that,the past. Your going to be such an awesome mother to little lani...someone she can look up to and know in her heart that she has the best mommy in the world. I'll always be here if you need me. You, my friend, are a true gem and I pray that we'll be close always. God truly sent a blessing my way when our paths crossed.... :) ... love ya, Umoh Cloud AKA Ummz
