CHEERS TO COFFEE AND GOOD FRIENDS
Since I’ve been back at home in Ohio it’s become a weekly affair for my friend and I to meet at our gorgeous neighborhood park for a walk along its trails. We take turns picking up coffee for added warmth (extra hot please!) and my dog, Faith, always tags along.
The two of us have been friends since childhood. There’s a special bond and comfort factor in that which is quite impossible to find anywhere else – and trust me, I’ve been everywhere else! While I have met many great friends along the way, simply nothing compares to a friendship shared with the person who’s known you since you were just a wee kindergartener. I even played a pivotal role in introducing her to her husband – and she’s working hard to repay the favor!
Even though I’m missing the warmth and sunshine of California, it’s precious moments like these that make me so thankful to be home again – and help to make the bitter Ohio winters practically bearable!
