Celebrate!



Have you ever met someone that you felt you had known forever? Someone that is so in tune with you that you feel you can say anything to them and know that they will listen and not judge you ............ but will tell you when you are wrong? I have. My only regret is that I didn't know her many years ago. Women need girlfriends, true sisters of the soul.



My friend is celebrating a birthday. She is one of those people who buys whatever she wants or needs. Hard to shop for. She is extravagant in her giving. She is very intuitive and gifts me with the most thoughtful and wonderful gifts. Makes me feel inadequate. I know she would hate that I feel that way; that's the kind of friend that she is. So while I am searching the very depths of my brain to find something unique and thoughtful I am writing this post for her.



Happy Birthday, Deb! I promise to be your friend forever! Oh, and I plan to live for a very long time!! There will be a little surprise waiting for you here at the campground. But............ my big gift to you is not posting an unflattering picture of you and me working in the gardens! You are welcome! I hope you have a marvelous day. I love you, my friend, my soul sister.

Oh I know just what you mean. I feel so inadequate, so selfish next to some of my friends.

I think perhaps you gave her the greatest gift of all. Your friendship and a very personal post - all sent out into the universe with love.
