Friendship ~

Today I received a phonecall from someone who has been a customer of mine for a long time...
after talking 'business' briefly, we started chatting about life-in-general.
it was an amazing conversation, and I am truly blessed to have customers I can call Friends  ~
even though we have never met in person,
we shared some life experiences that were relatable to us both...

...both good, and bad...kindred spirits.

Thank you Tina for being so sweet ~

This got me to thinking about how valuable girlfriends can be to each other...
and how I value the true Friendships that I have in my life.
how each girlfriend I have is different from one another,
...but so similar and how each
brings something different to my life:

we surely know how to make each other laugh ~
sometimes to the point of explicit embarrasement
(THAT is thee best laughter)

how to bring out the best of each other ~
being tactful and kind with our words...

and of course the worst in each other too...
...sometimes a good fight can bring us closer
(good friends should know how to argue constructively)

always knowing how to be supportive in even the worst situations...
(a good cry together can be so cathartic)

Even though most of my readers and myself have never met face-to-face
I consider you my Friends...
we should all gather together
and have some sort of convention somewhere and toast each other ~
wouldn't that be fun?

I'll bake cupcakes, you bring the wine!

Blessings from the farm,
