This is a pic of one of my oldest friends, Leslie, who is like a sister in many ways. Her mom was like a second mom to me and her sisters were family as well. We’ve been sort of extended family for oh, somewhere around 35 years now.
Every year or so when we head back to California, Leslie drives down with her kids to spend the day with us, and we finish it off with a celebration traditional dinner at a local mexican food place. Great fun, a day to relax and talk and catch up in person! God is so good to give us such long term pals, through thick and thin. And each year we take this goofy pic, where we look progressively older and doofy, but we don’t care because we are so darn happy!
“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure. A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth.” Sirach 6:14-15
