ABC Wednesday - 1st Time

This is my first attempt at ABC Wednesday.

F is for Friends...

Tonight my girlfriend and her daughter took me and my kids out to Outback. I haven't been there in over 12 years. It was sweet to have someone take me out and sneak away to "wash her hands" or to tell the staff that whatever I ordered for dessert was to have a birthday candle on it.

She is probably my "newest" friend out of all my friends. We know each other for about 2 years but it seems oh, so much longer. We met when our kids were in Preschool together and spend a lot of time together during the school year.

She is someone I can count on and who I love very much. I adore her sense of humor, although sometimes she is a bit over the top. All part of her charm folks. If you really know her you would know that she is caring, sensitive, loving, affectionate, and loves her family and friends. She and I have a lot of things in common; we are constantly telling each other, "I do that too" or "I just did that, saw, that, said that, etc."

I adore her and I am so honored to have her in my life.


  1. Friends are such a wonderful blessing. Good choice for your first ABC Wednesday!

  2. Kim, Thanks so much. I love this meme.

  3. It's wonderful to meet someone you just KNOW you're meant to be friends with. I've met several whom I don't see that often, but when we "clicked" we just knew it! And by the way, "Happy Birthday!"

  4. Leslie, Thank you! It is hard to make REAL friends as you get older. I was lucky to find 2 very REAL friends in the past 5 years that I absolutely adore.

  5. What a great idea for your F post . Yes, i agree that friends are so important in our lives. Isn't it great when you first meet someone & something just clicks between you? I think that has happened 4 times to me & those 4 friends have remained in my life.

  6. Great "F". It is always good to have real friends :-)

  7. Welcome to ABC Wednesday!
