Today I am a year older. Mom left a card at the front door---it reminded that I came into the world at 6:08 in the morning and that I arrived with a lot of snow. What a long year it has been. So many changes and challenges. It helped today that I got to share some time reflecting and pontificating about the past year with my dear friend J. He has been a constant friend since we were 10 years old. We sat in every homeroom together and later even attended the same college. He was in my wedding with his cowboy boots. He knows more about me than most. J is my oldest confidant. And I was blessed that he arrived today (visiting his home state and family during his turkey day vacation from his work in D.C.) and treated me to a breakfast brunch...that lasted hours over good conversation. I am lucky to have friends such as this...that time, place, and distance melts away when we get back together...if even for a few hours over hot tea and tasty quiche. How great indeed is the gift of long friendships. I am grateful for each and every friend that shares my journey.

Hope your day was truly special - our oldest daughter just turned 30 - that was almost life changing for me - what a shock. Seems I was just turning 30!
