Years ago, when our children were still in elementary school, my best friend and I had coffee on her front porch nearly every day. Our children went to a Christian school, and we lived in Georgia, so when it was time to pick up the children, I had to drive to Tennessee. I would come about an hour or so early, and we would have 'a cup'! Then I would pick up my children and hers and take them home.
She owned her own kennel/grooming business, so she could pretty much stop and start when she wanted to. We solved many, many problems on that porch. When winter came, she had a huge kitchen, with a big bay window where her table was, and we would move inside and sit at the table and continue making memories.
We cried together, laughed together, solved problems together and I wouldn't take anything for that time in my life. We have been friends for nearly 50 years, our children are all grown and married, and we are still best friends today. We are actually family, related on Jim's side, as her Dad and Jim were first cousins.
The surgery center did call yesterday, and I am now scheduled for March 9th, to have the left eye done. I will be glad to not be looking at everything cross-eyed.
Do you pay your bills online or do you write checks? I have paid all but two of mine online for years, but yesterday I finally found the site to pay those two as well. I told my daughter that now I didn't even have to walk to the mailbox.....lazy am I! It is so easy and quick.
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE
