"It is a sweet thing friendship, a dear balm, A happy and auspicious bird of calm........" Percy Shelley
I am so lucky. I am so blessed. I am so happy because I have the best friends in the world! I wish I could be more eloquent in stating this, but alas, I am no wordsmith. Let me just say that I would not have made it this far in my life without friends. They support me unconditionally, they laugh with me, cry with me, and make my life a total joy!

Pretend I just won an Oscar. I have to thank: Noreen, Trish, Jane, Lorie, Susan, Karen, Kathy, Melissa, Sharon, Pat, Beth, Kim, Sandy, Bertha, Joyce, John, Stan, Kathy P., Patti, Julie, Diane, Jill, Mary Lynn, Heather, Dorothy, and Carolyn.

These are the people who make my life so happy! (of course so do my husband, mother, brother, Dad and Mary!).

But there is something different about girlfriends, isn't there??? The hysterical laughing, the talk, talk, talking, the trusting, and THE SHOPPING!!! It is all so much fun!

This weekend I will get to meet Kim in person! We are planning on a wonderful time of getting to know each other better and antiquing and art talk!!! Jane and Julie will be along to and I am so excited!!

Thank you friends for being in my life! I could not make it without you!

Laura said...

Oh Sandy if you only knew!!! We were all talking about coming to LA sometime and "taking a class" from you!!!!!! Don't worry, we will consult with you first!

Jane said...

This is soooo sweet it makes me teary eyed! For those of you who don't know... Laura and I met in the parking lot at Archiver's scrapbooking store (doomed from the very start with the SHOPPING!) and we instantly connected! Trish was there in the lot too and who would have ever thought we would all be such good dear friends? It truly was meant to be! Love you and thank you for being you - you're the best - oh and this blog and all the others has really been so cool how we all "know" each other and live across the U.S. - okay enough sappy from Janie poo....

Maggie Ann said...

It sounds like your life is rich and overflowing with blessings. How good!

Trixie said...

I'm verclempt! I have watched you unfold like an intricate orgami puzzle, each layer a deeper shade, yet familiar. I have learned to truly understand your weirdness...but I still slip and am crass and abrubt - for that I apologize. You tolerate my sick sense of humor, my wild side and my illiteracy and still love me cuz I am generous, and giving and accepting. I think I need a cig.

Heather said...

awww, Thank You Laura. I am very touched to be included amongst your dear friends. I am so thankful to the internet that has allowed people with so many physical miles between them to become so close.


Diane Duda said...

What a lovely post! I think you are quite the wordsmith. Thanks also for the kind words you left on my blog. I was thrilled to know it was you, because I love visiting here.
I'm glad you liked your purchase and wanted to let you know that my "masked girl" did show up on etsy just this morning.
