Sometimes I can go days without seeing anyone except my little family, and that's ok. But sometimes it's nice to get out of my house, too. Today was one of those days. It started with a visit to a friend in my neighborhood, where I hopefully lightened her load a little by doing her dishes and straightening her kitchen. Then I ran into a friend at the grocery store, a friend I've been meaning to call for days but hadn't yet. We visited for a minute and I admired her new teeth. And then I spent some time with my good friend, Beth, and her perfect little twin babies. And when I got home, there was a sweet note in the mail from Ellen Patton, friend to the world.

I am thankful for friends, for their kindness and sincerity, and for the brightness they add to my life. I have always admired my older sister, Leslie, who calls everyone she meets a friend. I think the country could use a little bit of that right now, don't you think, friend?


  1. I love you and your friends for being in your life every day when I can't. Thanks for the nice compliment. :)

  2. Yes, agreed, friend. :)

  3. I loved this post. :)
