Taking time to be with dear friends....

I've been too busy for too long! A dear friend asked me to meet her and her mom at Multnomah
Falls this morning for breakfast. Why is it so difficult to set aside a
bit of time to just be together with friends? I drove my new (well, new
to me) car Mary Todd up the old gorge highway and oh, what a wonderful
autumn drive! The sun even agreed to peek out and warm up the chilly
We had a little pot of tea and and a nice breakfast while
we gazed out of the window at the falls. The wind and harsh rains have
just about stripped the trees of their painted leaves.

This morning was a lesson
in friendship-a reminder that relationships are dear and the time given
up to spend time with others is a blessing. I need to practice this and
enjoy my friends more than I do.

So when are we getting together again? :)

Oh soon I hope Jane! I love your Annabelle and you have inspired me to sew her dresses.

Hi Mom. Glad you got to spend time with your friend. I laughed really hard when I got to the comment part of this post because the theme is being too busy, then you hint that you're going to start to sewing dresses for Annabelle. That's my mama. xo
