Giving Thanks Post Day 2
I have been blessed during my life to have good friends.
Bernice is my life long friend. I've known her my whole life.
Our parents knew each other and went to the same church.
No sisters or brothers for me but Bernice is closer than a sister.
She knows all about me, both the good and the bad, and still we are friends. : )
Janie and Patty come to mind when I think of my friends.
They were sisters and my next door neighbors from the time I was in
third grade until I left home to get married.
We have stayed friends over the years.
Sara-Jane comes to mind too. We met when we were 19 working at Harmon Colors.
Only worked a year together but have been friends all these many years.
We haven't seen each other in years but we do keep in touch for birthdays
and Christmas and I believe she reads my blog sometimes. : )
Ken was in the Navy for 20 years and we lived in a many different places
and I've met many good friends during that time.
Too many to mention by name.
We kept in touch for a while after moving but then lost touch.
But that is okay because for the time they were in my life they made
a difference in my life and have left memories.
I must mention Mary Jo, who has been my dear friend for the last 6 years.
She helped me get through a rough time when we first met
and we have had many wonderful lunches and happy times since then.
I am also thankful for the many new friends I have met since moving here.
The group of us who go bowling and our game nights.
Many times I have laughed so much that by the end of the day
my cheeks hurt. : )
The people I have met while walking also come to mind. Here and the
other places I've lived and walked.
We may just be acquaintances but I am thankful for all of them too.
Then of course there are all of you, my blogging friends.
Blogging friends are in a category all their own.
Anyone who blogs will understand that.
What special people you are.
It's amazing how good you can know someone from just being blog friends.
I have been so thankful to have met some of you in person
and hope to meet more of you some time down the road.
There are many more friends I have not mentioned by name
but you are all special to me and have given me many happy memories.
I am so very thankful for each and every one of you and
thank YOU for being my friend.
