(missing Ruth in this picture...she came later from work and Sandi was away taking care of her daughter)
Kristy was so sweet as to open her home to a group of us...just because .....no real reason....but that she is a kind person and wanted to share.
Quite often I ask my grandchildren this question- "Do you know why I love you?" I have done this over the years and they know now to answer...."You love me, Because I'm kind" yes, that is right.... I love you because you are kind and show courage ...that is what is important.
I loved that Kristy invited us over- I love being around a group of women who treat each other with kindness and respect....who refrain from judging and criticizing.
I think in all of us there is a longing for friendship, a deep yearning to belong....we need only be a friend. I realize Sometimes we need to guard our hearts when hurtful things have been said or untruths told....but we still can be kind and go forward with courage.
We need only be a friend....what a fun lunch date...awesome food...oh my goodness!
Thanks Kristy and you beautiful ladies that shared your awesome rolls, fabulous dessert....and Yummy salad.
(PS Kristy I still need your recipe for that to die for quiche)
Having been so richly blessed by friendship, I know of the value of friends in my own life and express my gratitude to all of them. I know that when we offer ourselves in friendship, we make a most significant contribution to God’s work and to the happiness of His children.
We need only be a friend.
