What could be a greater treasure than friends? And vintage friends at that! Here are two special friends I've known for quite the number of years--Chris and Dorothy--regular commenters here on Mountain Musings. So now you can connect their faces with their encouraging words.
The three of us enjoyed a 4+ hour lunch yesterday at Ukrops in Richmond--talking, enjoying catching up on each other's families, exchanging Christmas gifts, and saying goodbye to Dorothy who transfers with her husband and family to Mississippi in January. The atmosphere was festive, the food was good, and time to leave came much too quickly.
"A friend is one to whom we may pour out the contents of our hearts, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away." ~Arabian proverb
