the beauty of friendship personified………..
Working out at the gym is not only great for the body and mind…great friendships can be exercised as well. Such has been my experience with Roxy. She diligently exercises, and in the same spirit practices the art of friendship…often using art as an expression of her caring. Over the years I have not only had the pleasure of her company while stretching and lifting, but have been the recipient of bits of her art commemorating various life events.
a thank you

I treasure the art – I treasure the friendship!!!
Once upon a time there were two families with an abundance of children who brought two mothers together. Committed to teaching our children propriety and respect, she was addressed as Mrs. Estabrook and I as Mrs. Wennerstrom…over time the three syllable names were shortened to Mrs. E and Mrs. W. (I know, I know, ‘w’ has three syllables…) In due course, as the children became adults and relationships deepened with some, the ‘Mrs.’ was just too formal. Since we are both ‘Susan’, first names didn’t work. Thus, ‘W’ was born, followed by ‘E’ in short order. So endearing now to hear even the grandchildren refer to us this way!
Do you have stories, short or long, of friendship and connection? I would love to hear them!
