An overcast cool day. Visiting with a friend, sipping tea by the glow of a candle. Good conversation that warms your soul and makes you forget it is cold outside. I feel so fortunate to have a friend who I can share my deep and darkest secrets. It seems like no matter what I share she accepts me and never acts shocked or dismayed. We've known each other nearly 20 years through good and bad times and I can't imagine life without her. I know that no matter what I need or when I need it I could give her a call and she would be there. There is a deep sense of security and comfort that comes from having a friend as good as that in your life. I feel so blessed and so thankful that I was able to spend part of my day with her. I have spent this weekend doing nothing, resting up for the busy work week ahead. I hope you all have a good week.
