Lunch with dear friends!

Two dear, dear friends and I met for lunch yesterday.
We've known each other for over thirty years, but with
busy schedules, moves, major changes in our lives
it has taken us all these years to just sit down... the three of us... and talk. And talk we did yesterday. We didn't just talk
about small children as we would have had we been
young mothers, or the trials and tribulations of
rearing teens. That is very much in the past for us.
No, we talked about the challenges facing us as we
experience.. how do they say it, "Life on life's terms".
Smoothly our conversation would drift into our
blog world, exchanging photography tips and
sharing where and when we blog.
We realized that we had a thirst for needing to be heard.
It was a beautiful time for sharing and laying out on
the table some very tender feelings and frustrations.
Who can you ever do this with but friends
God has placed in your path?
You may know these two dear ladies.
There is Laura on the left from White Spray Paint
and Nancy from Nancy's Notes.
What a blessing they are to my life.
Yesterday truly was an early Christmas gift!
