A evening of feasting, fellowship and fun.
So, the guests are gone, Darrell has helped clean up the kitchen, almost everything is back in place.
( well it looks good ).
So I pour a cup of coffee and sit down to reflect on the evening.
There are two little gift bags waiting for me. One is a little dish with a bird perked on the edge and a fragrant bar of soap. The other is a pendant, a silver cross of diamonds.
Both gifts were from very close and dear friends, unexpected though not surprised ( I know them so well and they love me )
The next morning I hear from a young friend who says her Mom could not stop talking about how much fun she had, how great the food was and..well, .that kind of complement I cherish.
I live an exciting life
