This week it’s all about friends!
A week of friends – It’s been a challenging week but some meet-up with friends soothed everything. One group met for dinner. We laughed. Big deep belly laughs. Laughter is a healer but it’s hard to laugh alone.
The game night crowd – Finishing off the friend week, we met some game friends. A little competition and a lot of food do wonders.
A friend sends the promise of spring – It’s not the weather but a blogger friend send me a jumping frog (no, not a real one) that made me laugh. Made the cats jump too and that made me laugh.
It’s a small world – A few weeks back I realized that one of my exercise buddies had been a teacher at my step-kids school many years ago. She had one of them in class. My step-daughter remembered her (fondly). This week I found out her sister worked at the same company I did at the same time. It is a large company so it’s not unusual that we never crossed paths but it is indeed a small world.
Be thankful for what you have – The two sisters in the above paragraph moved to my area as adults. I asked how they got here and why. They were raised in the poor rural south. Two parents and three kids lived in a four-room house without running water. This wasn’t in the 1800s. They are my age. I am very grateful for where I lived and what I have. I don’t remember a time without running water although I remember when my Mom got her first spiffy porcelain sink. She was over the moon. We have come so far and take so much for granted.
So how was your week?
