Sunflower Friends.

sunflowrSome of my friends are like sunflowers. They are extremely warm and pleasant and happy and I am always glad to see or hear from them. This afternoon, I had a chance encounter with one of my sunflower friends. We’ve known each other about sixteen or seventeen years (wow, I feel old saying that), but we had lost touch in the past three years with the exception of occasional notes. Today, I just happened to be waiting for an email confirmation when she sent me a chat. I was so glad to hear from her and to hear about the great things she is doing in her life. She has always been a really smart person with a LOT of initiative. It’s good for me to have a friend like that who makes me want to be better. I am going to make a special effort so that I can hear from her more often.

I was going to write something…

about Robert Novak’s passing or healthcare or something else that’s going on in the world, but Max just ran up and gave me a hug. Today is his third birthday. He just ran out of nowhere and wham! big hug.  It was so sweet. I just forgot about all that other stuff.  Maybe tomorrow.
