Saturday:) Such Friends Are These

16 Mar

Such friends are these that fill your days

With love and joy in countless ways.

Such friends who share your darkest night

And hold your hand till morning’s light.

Such friends though near or miles apart

Remain forever in your heart. ❤️

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, I have the bestest friends in the entire world. And yes, I say bestest, and spellcheck underlines it in red, questioning my authority and spelling capabilities. I have the dearest friends from high school, who I still keep in touch with. Then, the friends I made while the children were young, and we were crazy stressed out soccer/hockey/baseball moms. Don’t forget empty nester friends, bowling friends, church friends, tennis friends, and the…will you bring in my mail when I travel and I’ll watch your cat friends.

So, Thursday night when I was at karaoke with my karaoke friends, out of the clear blue I said, “Who wants to come over to my house tomorrow night for Black Russian Friday? Just drinks and snacks and laughs.” I scribbled my address on some scraps of paper for those who hadn’t been over before, and thus a party was hatched.

Friday night arrived and I had a house full of lovely ladies plus Mr. Jerry over for an impromptu party. We laughed and joked and ate and drank. Miss Loretta started the query of “tell us your most embarrassing moment.” We went around the room sharing. Oh boy! That was hilarious, and poor Mr. Jerry got to hear some interesting female faux pas. (I can’t repeat any on this page. Just use your imagination.)

Miss Pat, our dear “Cookie Lady” was the first to arrive, laden with all sorts of snacks and goodies. The first toast of the evening. The others filtered in here and there, also bearing gifts, and food, and beverages.

Such friends are these that fill my days………,
