Friends are very important to me and enrich my life in so many ways. As all the sayings go, some come for a season, some for a single reason, and some come and stay. Thru the years many of my friends have been there at exactly the right time to help me thru something and then for some explicable reason we are no longer close. I cherish each and every one and even if we are no longer close, I hold their memory dear and hope they do mine.
I bring this up because today was a day of friends stopping by and I only hope that I give them the support that they give me. One friend had a terrible experience yesterday at the dentist and wanted to vent. I encouraged her to get a second opinion before returning as she said this is the first time a dentist ever actually scared her!
Another friend came later and she has been having dizzy spells and doctor thinks she may be suffering from vertigo and gave her medicien and she was having trouble staying awake and I told her she needed to let things slide and just concentrate on getting better. I had filled 3 gallon jugs of water for her from our reverse osmosis system as their water is not good to drink and she and hubby took that home. I try to keep them supplied with drinking water.
I hope all of you have close friends who share their lives with you - give and take, laugh and sorrow, sharing life with each other. What a wonderful gift-friendship.
