F is for friends!…..


“Are you upset little friend? Have you been lying awake worrying? Well, don’t worry…I’m here . The flood waters will recede, the famine will end, the sun will shine tomorrow, and I will always be here to take care for you.– Charlie Brown to Snoopy”

The above picture is the night I graduated from Assumption High School back in 1972. (I look like I was a picnic tablecloth with my checkered dress) standing there with my best friend Liz. I’m not sure if I’d have gotten through high school with the great memories I have if not for Liz and my other friends. Great friends make even the most mundane things a blast!

Through the years I have and continue to be blessed with awesome friends..both gal pals and cool guy buddies too. They have carried me through the good, bad and ugly of life. As I watch the Real Housewives I think to myself…if those are what they call “friends” I’d rather be a cloistered nun! Good and loyal friends don’t tear you down but they lift you up or give you the gentle push you need to “go for it.” We can disagree but do it respectfully. Friends are a precious gift not to be kicked around. You can get together with a good friend after 30 years and still just pick up where you left off…with an ease and comfort.

Today …give a shout out via a phone call, text message, letter, email or a over a glass of wine or cup of coffee to those wonderful friends that make our lives to incredibly delicious!
