Cone flowers ~ are one of my absolute favorites. They are in full bloom and I love taking closeups of them.
More time with friends ~ I am incredible blessed by lifelong friendships. I spent an afternoon on Tuesday with my friend Kathy and her dad. I've written about Kathy lots of times, but we met in junior high, and our parents knew each other through our church. It's the kind of friendship where we blended into each others families. So many memories and so many years together.
Long, heartfelt talks ~ are my favorites. I had a nice, long phone conversation with my cousin this week. There's a comfort level that I have with her that reminds me of the way our mothers used to talk with one another, and I think of them often as Jackie and I chat so easily together. If I had a younger sister, I think that's how it would feel.
Wow, looking at my five this week, they are mostly about wonderful people in my life. I'm blessed, indeed.
