41. Dinner with a Lifelong Friend

I am so blessed to live near two friends I’ve known since 3rd grade.  Which now is a large enough percentage of my life, I can call them my lifelong friends.

Tonight I had dinner with one of them, Darlene, for her birthday.  Since we went to the same place we went to last June for my birthday, we think we’ve started a tradition!

But when I spend a couple hours with someone I’ve known so long, someone who knows me through and through and knows my family and cares about me and who’s just fun to be with — well, it’s going to be a long time before I feel lonely.  Even when I go home to my solitary snuggery.

I have some of the best friends a person could ever wish to have.  I am tremendously blessed.
