Good Friend

I had lunch just the other day with one of the best friends I know. She is amazing! If anyone needs dinner she volunteers. She always sends thank you cards and birthday cards to everyone she knows. She is quick to love and forgive. She makes time for friendships. I just love her. I learn from her example and pray that I will in some way be able to serve as willingly as she does.

The sad thing is that I only get a chance to see her on our birthdays. We share November birthdays. I keep in touch with her during the year with sporadic phone calls. She is one of those friends that the conversations always seem to pick up where they left off. We spend a few hours chatting and catching up. But all to soon it is time to go and pick up kids and head to doctor appointments. I am definitely going to have to make more time to keep up with long time friends.

Thanks, Jessie!

You can see Jessie below in the slide show. She is wearing a lovely orange top.

Happy Birthday!

True friends are a treasure, aren't they?

Isn't it nice to have friends and good people you connect so deeply with? And such a compliment to you--since you are reflected in those you surround yourself with.

It's good to have good friend, eh?

And, Happy Birthday, for your November one that's passed.
