Out of Touch.....and Friendships....

This has been a wacky week...we have been struggling with our internet service and it staying consistent....hopefully, finally, not a moment to soon, it is up and running. Keep those fingers crossed that it stays that way!!! In the midst of having to go cold turkey with the internet...I managed to run my cell phone through the washing machine. Just in case you didn't know...that is not a good idea, no matter how dirty you think it might be!!! LOL Trust me, it was almost a Betty Ford moment when I was left without both of those!!! Still trying to figure out what I am going to do for the phone....but while wading through about 800 emails that I had missed (yep, 800!!! and no, there were not viagra ads included in that!!!) I thought I would at least pop in and say hello and let you know I was still around.

Tiff always has such great stuff to share, and I wanted to do something thoughtful with this post and I don't think I could do a better job than what you will see below. As I watched it this evening after I saw Tiff's post about summed up many of my thoughts on friendship and the dear women in our lives. I feel sorry for the women that I have run across in my life that thought friendships could wait till....till the kids were potty trained, went to school, graduated school, got married, till retirement, till an illness passed, till frankly life passed by. These women don't know what they have much richer our lives are by the women that pass though and those that come to stay.... May we all be blessed with women that love us, tell us the truth, hold our hands, lift our hearts and kick us in the behind when needed... Now grab a tissue...and watch......and then say a prayer for those special women in your life!!!


  1. Glad you're back, I missed you...

    Thank you so much for sharing that. It made me really think.

    About the cell phone. My hubby took his into the pool with him. after a few days it dryed out and worked again.

    Glad to have you back


  3. Oh thank heavens you are okay. I was realllllly starting to get worried!

    I laundered not one but TWO cell phones. Sadly neither one of mine could be saved.

    You and Tiff are the two most awesome "BFF" a girl could ever ask for. You are both so different but carved from similar fabulously God made molds. Sadly, I don't have friends in "real life" that can even compete with you. The deepest part of my soul wishes I did *sigh*. Happy New Year, sisterfriend.

    Love you.

  4. Wow, Deb, that was touching. Much food for thought. Thank you!


I love hearing your input, comments, ideas and encouragment.....thank you!!!
