Hello my friends, what a glorious day I enjoyed today. It was 31C here today, no one told the weather man it was the first day of Fall.....suppose to stay this nice until the weekend.....
I slept in this morning and found myself rushing around so that I would make it on time to meet my friends for lunch. I stopped for gas and locked my keys in the car, had to call AMA to come and open my door....I arrived half an hour late only to find the girls laughing and chatting away, they knew I would be there and also knew that something had to have happened to make me late. They know that if I say I'll be there, nothing short of flood, fire or blood would keep me away. It was so good to see them, they were my best friend's when we all worked together and our 12 o'clock lunch ended at 3:15 with a promise to meet for a pot luck at the end of October. Already I am looking forward to it.....Oh how I have missed seeing these beautiful faces every day. We are all now retired and have found different interest but still hold much in common, we all do volunteer work we dearly love.
This rose was gently wrapped in beautiful paper and placed in my mail box. What a surprise for me when I returned home. The card read "a special rose for a special lady".....I know eventually I will find out who was so thoughtful to give this to me but I was ever so thankful to be thought of this way. Isn't it pretty. Sure hope it wasn't placed in the wrong mail box....LOL (just thought of this)
This is Linda, our desk were side by side for over 3 years....We shared so many laughs and helped each other with our work several times a day. Oh what fun we had! We have seen each other several times since our retirement and we talk by phone at least once a week. Working so closely together we created many memories and sharing them again today had tears running down our faces remembering. A true friend.
This is my beautiful friend Avanish. We bonded immediately when we met. We ate together, took our coffee breaks always at the same time, went for brief walks almost daily. We shared our families, friends, cultures even visited each others church and celebrated each others holidays. We still carry each others secrets, our friendship is bond that can nor ever will be broken. So much love and respect for each other.....my one true work friend.
This is Colleen, the wise one of the group. This kind and gentle lady can be described as "grace under pressure" She lost a son to suicide during our years together and she told us today that she never could of made it through those horrible days without us and she told each of us what we had done to help her. Oh what a beautiful lady, everyone should be so blessed to have a Colleen in their life. She is the perfect description of Faith, a joy to be in any one's life.
The cleaning lady came in this morning and locked the door on her way out. I returned from lunch to find a beautiful rose and a sparkling, polished home. Does it get any better than this.....ah yes my friends it did. Ken, my handy man came over around 5:30 and put up my vertical blinds. My new French Doors are finally dressed.
The only thing that interrupted my perfect day was my dear Dr. John called and has put me on an antibiotic. He wants to prevent an infection in my lymph nodes and the needle site, he also thinks it will help to heal my cyst. I will pick up my prescription tomorrow. Ah but it was a near perfect day I have had in a very long time. What a difference a day makes!
Good Night my friends and God Bless, I am sending you all many, many hugs.....:-)
