I am Overjoyed

I had a friend for lunch today.
The sun was shining nice and bright...
 The curtains blowing in the breeze.
We spent the entire afternoon
laughing
talking
eating
knitting
and being thankful for the day.
I am always especially happy when the weather becomes
nice enough once again for me to open up my windows and let 
the fresh air in.
And if it actually blows through my curtains,
I am overjoyed,
especially when this particular friend is coming to spend time with me.
The sight of  my curtains blowing in the breeze
for some reason makes her as happy as it does me.
We both wait with great anticipation for it through the long Winter months.
This friend is very dear to me.
She and I have been close for over thirty years,
raising up our children together.
Now sharing the joys of watching our grandchildren grow.
About a year and a half ago she had a serious battle with
Breast Cancer.
Two forms actually.
She's had surgery.
She's had treatments.
She is Cancer Free.
Praise God.
Together we 
Celebrate
the wondrous
small
simple
joyous 
 things of every day life.
Each day is precious.


"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together...
there is something you must always remember, 
you are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is,
even if we're apart...
I'll always be with you."
Winnie the Pooh
