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.
