You Got To Have Friends

I’ve thought a lot about who I would mention as the person I’m grateful for.

Of course, I love my son and daughter to death, and am so thankful for their presence in my life. I could write volumes about each of them.

I considered my two wonderful sisters, all my other relatives, and the great folks I work with. I thought about a variety of friends.

We share similar taste in many things – books, movies, and music – each stretching the other’s repertoire. We’ve each gotten the other hooked on certain TV shows. She understands exactly where I’m coming from, since we have many parallel life experiences. She never judges me when I say silly or inappropriate things, is great to bounce ideas off, and is honest when I ask for her opinion.

And we share a first name. How cool is that?!

  • That’s so very sweet, Peg.
    Having interacted with both Margaret and you through mails, I can understand why you are so attached to each other!

    Ever since I read your last post, I have been thinking of who I should name as the ONE person I should be grateful for. Tough question! But I will get back on it!

  • Hi Peg,
    Did I post my earlier comment in the wrong place?? Anyway, even though it may be gone, my final comment about a person for whom I am grateful (my sister Becky), she will play Scrabble with me even though she wishes she were anywhere else in the world. (most of the time she loses, even with 6 years of Advanced English education!).
