Yesterday, I lunched out with my friend Karen. We went to the Center Street Grill and both of us ordered their total heavenly Turkey Foccacia sandwich. I start to crave it when it's been a while since I've had one. It is de-lish! Karen and I have been friends for probably 14 years now. We first met when we were doing a Joy School group together with our boys and then I brain-washed her into helping me with our city's American Mothers chapter for many years. We share the same values and worries and both have always had a deep desire to be strong advocates of motherhood and children. We have worked together on many projects, conferences, programs, meetings, etc. She is a true friend and one that I can always count on for answers when I am searching for help in any area of life. She is a deep thinker and always has a solution to life's troubles. We can go for months and even years at times without really seeing much of each other, but still be able to pick up where we left off. She helped me so much when I did Tyson's tree for the Festival of Trees. One of the things we have most in common is our love for lighthouses. She just started a GREAT blog called Live The Moment. Be sure and check it out HERE.
Yesterday was kind of a catch up time for us because we haven't really talked in a while. We got talking about our children and the challenges that come with raising teenagers in today's world. We talked about how our plans haven't always turned out as we had hoped and realized that often that is for the better. Unfortunately, as we were just getting into some great discussions, we both had to go. We really needed about three more hours! But be it short, or be it long, it is still therapy just the same! I am so blessed to have so many amazing and incredible ♥friends♥ that lift me and inspire me each day. When I think of all the names I could add to my lunch therapy list, I feel so grateful to have been blessed with so many in my life. Where would be without friends? Do your friends theraperize you? If not, what does?
I'm ready to go to lunch again! Who wants to join me????☺
