Even though my birthday was a month ago we are still celebrating it!!


Isn't that fun?

At least for me...:)))

But really my friends were all starting school or finishing up summer vacation

and this was the first time we could get together for my birthday lunch!

Yes more mexican food....I like it...okay?

Good friends....

More goodies for me...

Yes...that is a chicken scarf.....squeeeelllll!!!!!

And then today I'm listening to my Christian radio station and there is a program on about friends.

And how friendships are important to us and that God wants us to have friends.

And then he quoted a Swedish saying that I had never heard but I loved.

Isn't that true?!!!

Your friends are there in your joyful times

ready to celebrate with you


more importantly they are there

when you are sad ready to hold your hand.

So to all of my friends 

near and far (you and you and you and you and you and you)

Thank you for being my friend!!!

I feel truly blessed!
