Some Morning Thoughts on Friendship

Good morning! The winds have stopped and I woke up to a gentle rain outside my bedroom window. It's calm, quiet and peaceful. I love November and this season. I guess I get a bit reflective at this time of the year. I'm having my coffee and my mind has been drifting to so many of my friends today. Some are very happy, some are making changes in their lives, some are in transition as they move into retirement, some are busy raising their families, and others are facing difficulties. I keep them in my heart and in my prayers. I am thankful for them all! Blogging, quilting, FB, bible study and old time friends...the list keeps growing. I only wish I had more time to stay in contact with them all!

Yesterday, my dear friend LaVonne in Montana wrote a great blog on her day with some new friends who meet each month for a day of knitting. I had encouraged her to do something fun, something just for her. I am so glad that she has joined this group. I think women really need the support of other women. Maybe we just need to talk. Anyway, so happy that she took the step to do this! She's a very busy lady and it's hard for her to make time for herself.

So as we slip into Thanksgiving, take some time to think about your friends...maybe send them a little note or a card. We sure need our friends.

Hello from Spain: you're right that we have to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is near. I know that in your country is a very familiar food .... Keep in touch

Oh, dear Linda. You are so right. Friends are one of life's most precious and treasured gifts.

I add my blog friends to the top of the list, too. Each is so special in his/her own way, including Y-O-U! Hugs. Susan
