Rememb'ring My Good Friends

"I count myselt in nothing else so happy
As in a soul rememb'ring my good friends."
- William Shakespeare
Yesterday I went to lunch with some of my dear friends from High School. We try to get together a couple of times a year to catch up on each others lives and find out what our children and husbands are doing. We always have a great time and for the most part we don't relive the past but enjoy the present and our true friendships. And we always run out of time and promise to schedule a lunch sooner next time. I'm ever so glad I didn't sever my relationships with these strong, sensitive women who lend me a listening ear at times when only someone outside my immediate ring would do and who I love being with because I feel young every time I see them and learn from their great wisdom. Their lives haven't always been easy, but they have held firm and planted to what they know to be true and I love them for it. Hurrah for good women and unbreakable friendships.

Just a few pictures of some of my very best friends. I love you all!

" A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away."
- Arabian Proverb

And of course my family who not only are related, but are my friends as well and I love it!!
