Circles of Friends

Morning Swim — a pastel by Ann Peters

Good Morning, God!

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. Kit and I took Mom down to a big lunch in her dining hall and then we went back to her apartment for Scrabble. Tomorrow I take off to see our grandson Ian graduate from high school — visiting both daughters as part of the trip. I am blessed with Family.

I am also blessed with Friends. And, God, mostly they are Long Time Friends. LTFs. How good it is, God, to have extended histories with people. After the symphony last night we had dinner with an LTF who used to go to childhood birthday parties with Kit. Still, although the passage of Time helps to deepen friendships, it isn’t essential. Sometimes we meet people with whom we instantly “click.”

Friends are incredibly important to me. Perhaps that’s why when I saw this pastel I called it a Circle of Friends. I am so fortunate to have Circles of Friends. Kit and I have a Circle meet in our kitchen every Monday for breakfast. Then I have the Women’s Wednesday Morning Prayer (and Comedy) Group at church. Everyone is welcomed to that circle, God. It is such fun to discover a New Friend as we are joined!

And, God, just last week a friend showed me how to use the Facebook app on my iPhone. Oh?, I said. It can do THAT? So, who knows, God, maybe I will be able to extend my definition of friends. After all, what could be better for our physical and emotional health than investing in friends!
