Sept. 6...My first memory of one friend

                 Years ago, right after college and getting married I found myself living in a place where I knew no one.  I sat in an empty apartment all day....movers took forever to arrive with the few pieces of furniture we owned.  One day there was a knock at the door....cautiously I opened it...to find a red headed lady...who walked right in , introduced herself, (said she had heard about me from her hubby) . She then said she needed help moving some essentials into  the apartment that she had packed in her car. 
                     My first friend in a new place....really a God send.
She and I became close friends, I volunteered to watch her 3 young kids while she and her hubby went away,...something they had not done in a long time.  She helped when my three were born, she introduced me to others.  I was the first one she called when her hubby died and she needed help telling the kids when they came home from school.  Yes we have been there for each other ever since.....

  1. How wonderful for both of you. Nothing like the comfort of a friend who knows everything about you and vice versa. Lucky girl.

  5. We meet our friends at strange times sometimes. (a redhead, must be a good woman indeed, LOL). Those kind gestures lasts a lifetime. Do good, and good will be done to you!
