It’s true. Many times throughout my life I have had friends who have made the going much easier. Some stayed, others moved on – but no less loved for no longer being here. Each filled a need at the time, essential parts of my soul nourished by their presence and support. I have made many such friends here on my blog, although I’ve only met one. That doesn’t matter a whole hell of a lot – the feelings are still there. We support each other, stroke when needed, cry when called for, hug just for the heck of it. And we laugh – long cleansing guffaws of healing laughter. One of my “sisters”, Brandy, sent me this beautiful cross-stitch. She made it herself. Isn’t it beautiful?
Happy Birthday Brandy!
On other news the heat wave seems to have let up for a while – I don’t trust that it’s entirely gone, but this reprieve is nice. The high today was 88 – with relatively low humidity. I can’t wait for Fall weather – highs in the 70s will be nice. My brain just shuts down in the summer; it hibernates and doesn’t come awake until the weather turns a bit chilly.
If you’ve visited my website, you know what I’m reading. So it’s your turn. What’s on your TBR pile?
