All through the years my girls were growing up my friend Diane hosted a Mother~Daughter Christmas Tea. Her house was always decked out in beautiful holiday fashion! We ate delicious food and elegant desserts. And laughed and laughed when we all sat in a circle playing that old game where you whisper something in the ear of the person next to you and see how different the phrase is by the time the last person says it out loud. So many memories flood my mind of those wonderful times spent with warm, loving friends.
Diane now lives in Kentucky and though we are seperated by miles, our hearts are as close as ever. Her two oldest daughters, Hannah & Maria, are the same ages as Hilary & Chelsea. We've shared a lot of good times watching these lovely girls grow into beautiful young ladies over the years. I think my favorite part of the holiday season is all the memories of past Christmases that come to life again.
I just have to share something so exciting with everyone. For years I have prayed God would bring my best friend from high school, Kathy, back into my life. Just yesterday I discovered an e-mail from her! I cried and laughed and ran through the house telling everybody. We've searched for each other for years and she finally found me through this blog. God is so good!
"A friend loves at all times..." Proverbs 17:17
I am so thankful to God for the many precious friends He has blessed me with.
