Some friends stopped in for a quick visit, as they were making their way to spend Thanksgiving with their family. My husband and I were able to unearth most of the living spaces from their coating of sheetrock dust, so we could dine with our friends. I even had a few moments to arrange flowers for the table. (Actually, there was no time for this, but in my mind, cleaning must always acquiesce to floral pursuits.)
Friends are one of the greatest gifts we receive in this life. I am most thankful for mine.
