Friendship...

Friendship is a personal relationship between two people. Female-Female, Male-Male, Female-Male, Young-Old etc. It is a relationship of mutal caring and concern, in the beginning-developing faith and trust in that person. There are friends--those who know you as a person and regard you for who you are. We have work friends, church friends, gym friends, neighbors etc. There are best friends--those who accept the good, the bad and the ugly about you. They are there for you at the drop of a hat. Friendship is about how much you care and understand each other. It's about talking, listening, laughing and being there for that person. Blogging has brought all of a lot of FRIENDS some we have developed stronger bonds with, which is one of the reasons I started blogging. It is fun to meet people from all over and particularly those who happen to be "in your own backyard."
Today I had the pleasure of meeting one of my
friends:
We met at Mimi's for lunch. Neither on of us
missed a beat, the minute we sat down we
started talking as if we hadn't just met in
person. :) We have developed a friendship
through blogging and we were able to get
both of our schedules to match. What fun
we had! There was talking, laughing and
eating going on.
I brought a couple of gifts for her. One was for
the baby.
Receiving blankets for the little one.
For Mary and Ben bubble wands, bubbles
and wash cloths that "grow" when wet.
We had a super time! Valerie is a great
lady and I look forward to our next lunch
together.
Thanks Valerie for such a fun time!!!!!

  11. Melinda: If someone had told me a few years back that I would be treasuring "cyberspace" friendships, I would have thought them crazy! And, yet, here I am looking forward daily to connecting. How wonderful that you've had a face-to-face visit.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Best,
    Bonnie
