I came home last night and there was a long narrow box on my doorstep, from QVC. I don’t ever order from them, I couldn’t imagine what it was. When I got it inside I saw that it had “live plant” on the outside of the box. It was a beautiful hibiscus from my oldest bestie in Iowa. We have known each other since we were 11 years old. I assume it is an early birthday present. She never forgets a birthday. (I’m the kind of person who’s grateful for FB reminders….) What a lovely thing to find, on my doorstep. I will try to plant it tomorrow, if I can muster one shred of energy, LOL.
So grateful for old friends. This past week has been so chaotic, between the grand opening today, and the drama with S, punctuated by a lovely wonderful evening with L . I am so happy to have a reminder of when times were simple and peaceful, and that I am so blessed with old friends, and new. So blessed with a rich full life.
I feel kinda bad writing about all the drama, but I needed to get it out. I will probably delete it at some point, it just isn’t really representative of who I am. But, then again, it is true stuff, that happened, and maybe leaving it up is a good reminder. I don’t know. I have left up all the other drama I’ve had with him, and when I see that someone has randomly read it a year later, I find myself wishing it weren’t there. It seems dishonest to take it down, on one hand. And on the other, it seems to give life to something I don’t want any part of any more. I’ll think about it when I’m not so tired, lol.
Well, off to get showered and dressed. It’s a big deal, I hope they have a good turnout, for all the work people have put into this. Love and light, all.
Good, long lasting friends are gems.
Friends are worth their weight in gold! 💙
