My spiritual sister and anything else I ever needed

From left: Sara, Guy, and Annie, who sent me this picture. Annie wrote, “Sara is 95 and my best friend for over 60 years. My husband, Guy, is in the middle. We were at Sara’s birthday party when this picture was taken two weeks ago. She and her husband, Travis, were our back yard neighbors in 1957 when we bought our first little house. They stayed with our little girls when our son was born and were what we call our kids’ Baptist Godparents! Travis died five years ago. Our daughter named a son Travis. This couple was friends we traveled with, had meals with, babysat when needed, loved our kids when natural grandparents were not there. Sara has been my spiritual sister, and anything else I ever needed. She is fun and still going strong. She plays the harmonica and sings in choir at her church, a remarkable woman.”

Another picture I love: sisters and Mom

From left: Debbie, Jody, and Tammy, who sent me the picture. She wrote Debbie is her sister and best friend; Jody is her role model. I don’t know what I like most about this photo: their expressions or the sign Tammy is holding up. Oh well. I love it! It made me so happy to receive it. Thank you.

Fristers for Life!

I LOVE this picture. I want to be at this party. When I received this email, I just burst out laughing. I hope the photograph makes you smile too.

It takes a lot of confidence to wear a hat like that! From left: Kristy, Kathy, Karen, and Deb. Kathy, who sent me the photo said, “We have all been close and so grateful for the love we share for each other.”

Best friends!

About two weeks or so ago, I asked readers to make a deal with me: if they would send me a photograph of themselves with their best friend, I would give them a copy of Return to Celebration House. Readers answered the call, and I received some truly lovely pictures.
The problem was, what to do with these treasures? Initially, I planned to build a collage, but because there are so many pictures, they would all be teeny tiny. That’s no good.
Instead, I decided to post one picture to my blog every day for the next two weeks or so. That way, the photographs are of decent size. I’ll share them in the order in which they were received.
It was a delight to receive these photographs. All of the women (and a couple of men) who were shown looked so happy. That in turn made me happy. My husband said I cackled with delight each time I received one.
My sincere thanks.
