"Can miles truly separate us from friends? ..."
~ Richard Bach
One of the best things about getting older (no not the weight or the wrinkles) is friends. Not just the acquaintances we have where we work, live, or worship but those really close friends who just seem to know when you need to talk. They enter your life unexpectedly and choose to stay no matter what.
I have such a wonderful group of girlfriends. I don't get to see some of them as often as I would like but when we do, it's as if we had always been together.
Joan and Sue Ellen are two of those friends (really more like sisters). Joan lives in Cartersville, GA and Sue Ellen lives in Franklin, TN. So we rotate as often as we can at each others home now that we are all retired. This past week we went to Sue Ellen's. Just us 3 hanging out by the fire, shopping, eating, and watching it snow!
We met each other almost 13 years ago when we were carving our horses for the Coolidge Park Carousel.
