On a cloudy, cold Saturday in January, my husband and I took
a 2 hour drive to visit our good friends in a neighboring state. We were blessed by a
kind, gracious invitation to their home for dinner.
As we drove, we remarked about the many and rapidly changing cloud formations
before us. But, despite the somewhat dismal and overcast weather
conditions, we were eagerly looking forward to our visit.

get together with friends!
Joining us at the lovely dining room table, were their daughter and their grandson. The
conversation was most interesting, as we found ourselves learning many new facts about
robots, movie animation, and various other fascinating topics. For both my husband and
I, "table talk" with old and new friends is one of our favorite ways to pass time.
After dinner, we moved into the family room, where we were so fortunate to share in our
hostess's newly acquired skill of making crème brulee. What an extra special treat, along with
cups of hot coffee, and more conversation.
Quietly, this beloved family pet joined us, during our visit. He has been with them for
many years, and appeared to be right at home in our midst.
Life is short! Time with friends adds so much to making it all better. We treasured the
memories of our moments here, and look forward to more times together during our
remaining years ahead.
