“A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad.”

~ Arnold H. Glasgow


“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

~ Khalil Gibran


Our prompt this month in The Studio 2.O class I’m taking with the talented and amazing Kim Klassen is “foraging”. Yesterday, in between rain showers, I foraged in my back yard and gathered a few things from the Virginia creeper vine to photograph.

I had harvested the squash from my garden in the morning and done some other garden chores. Good thing I got to it early because it turned out to be a crazy weather day. Rain, wind, thunder, sun, then more rain and wind. Then this:

This afternoon, as is the case most Fridays, I’ll be blessed to enjoy coffee and a visit with a dear friend. There’s something precious about having a friend you’ve known for a long time, someone who already knows your story, someone you’ve shared experiences, much laughter and a few tears with over the years, who remains a constant in your life.

In this I am blessed.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I like your foraging photo. Again, simple but stunning. And the rainbows! I can see the gold.

  2. Love the red. There is little that can replace a friend like that. They are so nice to have.
