Summertime Fun – Already!

Okay, so summer doesn’t officially start until this Friday – but once Memorial Day comes and goes, I think it’s summer. Or close enough! In Ohio, we can’t count on summertime weather starting that early, but we do start having some nice days.

And what could be better to do on one of those nice summery type days than to be hanging with a special homey! Now that makes me get “Tickled Pink”!

Me and Marie!
We were trying to remember how far back our friendship goes. We were laughing as we tried to figure it all out. As fellow quilters, we were basing it on different Quilting Getaways, Shop Hop Trips, Quilting Speakers our guild sponsored and even better – which quilt we were working on when we met! It was quite fun trying to narrow it down. We’re pretty sure it’s been more than eleven years! 
As we celebrated another milestone in our children’s life together, her middle child’s graduation, we relished the fact that though time and busyness sometimes makes weeks go by without a call or a visit, the friendship grows ever more rich as the time goes by. 
Just the thought of my dear friend Marie and her family, that I’ve grown to love as my own, makes my heart swell. It’s definitely a “Tickled Pink” thought! 
What about you? Do you have a friend who you have known for years, that even though you don’t speak every week – when you do, it’s as if the last conversation was yesterday? Well…let’s hear about her here in the comments below! It’s time to thank God for the gift of friendship today, folks!
…and that’s all I have to say about that!

  1. My best friend from VA and I taught for 6 years together and I love when she comes to visit (about once a year) because it is like we just pick up where we left off in conversation and in friendship! Can’t wait for her to visit next weekend =)

    1. Oh, that sounds absolutely wonderful! We will know why you will be MIA on Living in Hope, right?! You’ll be enjoying your friend’s company. I bet you are counting down the days until she arrives. And then will want to put everything into slo-mo so the time doesn’t end!

  2. YES! I have a few that are like this :). My college room mate, my dear friend since he fifth grade down in VA, another long time friend that moved WAY out to CA and we were just invited to his wedding in August {though we are so sad not to be able to attend 🙁 }.
    I think God is so awesome to give us friends that need no explanation or hours of catching up as if they were “long lost”. Friends that you know you can count on no matter what!
    Thanks for the reminder of good, solid friendships!

    1. You are quite welcome, Mz. Donna! And you are blessed to have a few that you rattled off so quickly! Sorry you’ll miss the wedding…maybe a trip later to be able to visit longer and without having to share the time with all the wedding guests!!
