Best friends

I have been thinking a lot about my friends at home and that I am really lucky in that department. Grumpy and I were talking about how I'd love to get them all together for new years and celebrate. I don't see my friends nearly enough and sadly I don't write or call as often as I'd like. Most of this is due to the fact that I work a lot and they tend to be deep asleep when I get home and all of us are just to busy. But that is the great thing about REAL friends; you don't have to be together every waking moment or call each other all the time - but if you need them or just want to talk to them and see them they are there for you now questions asked. I admit I have the best friends a girl can ask for and I have to thank my mom for part of that. She raised me well and raised me to be a best friend to my friends. Growing up I didn't have a big family so my friends were always that - my family.

I have friends that I made when I was 3 and I have some I made as recent as last year that are here in my new home and around the world. My philosphy for friends is simple - if you are my friend I will do everything in my power to be there for you - I would walk thru fire for my friends and I know they'd do the same for me. Often you wont know if someone is a real friend until they are tested and sometimes that one's you thought were such turn out not to be. I am not sure why I am thinking about this now maybe its the belated Christmas present filled with all my favorites from my friend that I don't talk to that often and besides Christmas cards we never send stuff to one another or the fact that we are going to Germany and I am trying to plan out our trip. I hope all of you are blessed with friends as I am.

I am definitely blessed with you. Thank you. Love that photo at the top! Love it!

You sure are blessed. I can't think of a single friend that I still keep in touch with that I've had for, say, more than 10 years. It's a pity really. So many folks come in and out of our lives.

Dan - you know there is no reason not to pick up the phone/pen/keyboard.

Cool! A Rhine Cruise - can't go to Germany without a trip down the Rhine!! I'd like to go back to Oberammergau. That place rocks, the countryside is beautiful.

Aside from that I enjoy our visits. See you later!!

Phos - I think you need to lay of the wine. No rhine cruise mentioned or planned it would be to cold anyhow
