If You Don’t Make Time for Your Friends, When You Have Time, You Won’t Have Friends

As I hit a blogging anniversary of sorts (this is my 100th post to http://www.shellysretirementadventure.com), I was wondering what important thing I should write about and realized–no contest–it should be about friends.

My mother, who lived to almost 93, always said how important friends were

Botanical Gardens and Arthur Ave 003and I especially realize that now in retirement.

Two dear friends are celebrating their 45th and I well remember being there for their wedding and later being around when their children and grandchildren began to arrive (and are still arriving).

Sadly, we have lost dear friends and we miss them daily, but we remember Susan, Mike and Howard for the many gifts they gave us.

I should of course mention four-footed friends none of whom I will ever forget.
