ahh...friends

Friends are great, aren't they? I'm partial to girl friends...we can really connect, us females! And I have two of the best right here with me.

Yesterday was the monthly luncheon for Cathy and Linda and me. I won't go into much detail about Miss Cathy getting the dates confused and sitting in Panera Bread on MONDAY instead of TUESDAY all alone...waiting for Linda and me... When she realized Linda was late (Linda is NEVER late) the proverbial bell went off...she called Linda..."Linda Grubb?". "Yes, Cathy". "We're not meeting for lunch today, are we?". "No Cathy, we're all having lunch tomorrow.". "Didn't think so...I'm leaving Panera Bread right now. See you tomorrow". When Linda relayed this conversation to me, I was ON THE FLOOR!!!!! Cathy, you know this is put out there with all the love I have for you in my heart! But this one was PRICELESS!!!! (And Linda does an AWESOME impersonation of Cathy!!!!). I really needed that laugh! Thanks girls!

So, we connected yesterday, ate a nice lunch, splurged on a little dessert, laughed and laughed and laughed and thoroughly enjoyed just being together. It afforded me a few hours to just relax and be worry-free and for that I'm grateful. And you know, every time we're together I learn something; I either learn something new about my friends or I learn something about myself and isnt' that a wonderful bonus to just being together? I love these buddies of mine...

*side note...okay, I had my camera with me the WHOLE time and didn't take one stinkin' picture - am I a doofus or what???!!!! NEXT time for sure!!!

Hey Joyce, we do have a good time don't we?! Doubt if I will live down the wrong day thing, but that's ok, it was funny:-)
