Roses from my garden remind me of the beauty of friendships
I should be writing, or doing something productive, but instead, I'm sitting on my back porch sipping coffee and thinking about how blessed I am to have such lovely friends in my life. I don't have to see them or even talk to them on a regular basis; just thinking about them makes me feel warm and cozy. And I'm thinking one of those friends might be you. I want you to know that I appreciate your friendship, no matter how near or far you are. I ignored Mr. Guilt when he whispered in my ear, "you should write each friend individually, not on a impersonal blog." That is probably true. However, through the years I am learning to ignore that dark feeling of Mr. Guilt, and listen to my heart.
Yesterday I worked in hubby's office--it is now up and running (yes!); afterwards I experienced a quick workout (whew!), and then went for a 'girls night out' with visiting So-Cal family to celebrate my granddaughter's twenty-first birthday (smiling!). What fun we had acting like silly girls. Laughter is the best medicine for a weary body and soul.
My website is still down but I shall live and not die. Technology shall pass, but the love of God and the love of family and friends shall remain. Wait ... I seem to be drifting again, like I often do. I must get back on track...
To my friends out their in Blog Land, I wish you smooth sailing as you enjoy your week-end. Work a little, play a little, love a lot.
