Isn't it good to have a friend?

Denise & I met through our husband's mutual love of old Chevy's. We were attending the same Car Conventions and slowly began an acquaintance. Then one year we were both in Kissimmee, Florida area--of course for another car related event- & our husbands threw us the car keys-& off we went on our own adventure.

Denise is a several years younger than me. She has no children of her own. I have two children and am the granmother of six! She grew up in Chicago-I grew up in a small Missouri town. She is Catholic. I am conservative Holiness. She is a professional woman, working in The Sears Tower, downtown Chicago, & I am a care giver for my grandbabies.

But somehow our friendship clicked. We have had a lot of fun together, plus have shared some serious times. It had been over 3 years since we had seen each other. Finally, Denise had a business appoinment in Indy & was able to schedule a trip down here. This afternoon she came down & we were able to talk, laugh & visit for about 5 hours. It was a good thing.

Sometimes we need to take out time for ourselves & the special friends in our lives. Thanks, Denise, for making the extra effort to spend a Sunday afternoon with a friend who is still sick with the hangovers of the 'flu. Let's not let it turn into about 3 years before we do it again!

Glad you got to spend some time with Denise! It just takes some effort to do those things and then you end up really enjoying your time together! (Like we did with Gene and Angie!) Now it will be your turn to go to Chicago and see her! (Sounds like fun!)
