Thankful for Good Friends!!

Monday, February 11, 2013

What a fabulous weeked! Although several factors played roles in making it great, just one factor made it super-awesome: good friends.

On Saturday we had a night out to celebrate a friend's birthday. Fun-o-rama! Good food, excessive tequilla, and dancing, just as if we were in our 20's again. The birthday girl is a sweetheart and emotional when tipsy, so we were all aware of how much she loved us by the end of the night. Also in attendance were my two best friends, now dating one another: Eric and Karrie. They are the right kind of people to have as friends; they'll do anything for me (as they proved by helping on my roof this summer!). My man, the DD, manfully drove us all home safely.

Yesterday, I spent hours swimming with a retired friend I don't get to see very often. It was good for my soul. I got a good workout and meaningful conversation at the same time. She's a true soul-sister!

Sparkfriends are another one of the things I'm thankful for. You guys keep me grounded, make me feel loved, worthwhile, and encouraged, hold me accountable, and give me love and smiles daily. Thank you!! I'm truly blessed.

    I'm swimming with a bud on Minday, really looking forward to catching up and exercising too, rather than lunching together.
    Have a good weekend!
