I have had the good fortune to share this group of friends for many years!
The photo above show four of us "sweet, young things" all dressed up, going out for dinner to celebrate Christmas. That was forty-four years ago....what!
I had just moved to this little town in the country from Portland and Jackie was one of the first women I met.....sweetly, she invited me to join her and some friends, Gloria, Winnie and Winnie's sister, Mike for a Christmas celebration dinner at the local golf course.
The rest is history!
We have shared births, deaths, divorces, marriages, kids growing up, grandkids growing up, a BUNCH of birthdays and some pretty crazy adventures! Boy, do we have stories to tell!!!
Through the years we have shared the sadness of losing our friends Gloria, Mike and Norma (not pictured here).
We've, also, added precious friends Jean, Murva and Margaret who have celebrated with us for nearly thirty years. Judy is a lovely new friend, who joined us for Christmas for the first time this year and Linda was ill and could not come.
I am so fortunate to have these great women in my life....old friends are GOLD!
