Mary left yesterday. Who is Mary you ask? Well, she is a dear, dear lady! She and my mom became friends when my mom was pregnant with me and Mary was pregnant with her son, Tom. So, basically, Mary has known me ALL my life. I had not seen her in years and we had the best week. We played cards until at least midnight every night. We went to Yellowstone and had a blast. No matter how many times I have seen it, it is still fun to go and see it for the first time thru someone else's eyes. It is a place of wonder for sure.

Mary brought her granddaughter Hannah who is 16. My oldest are 17 and 15 and they all 3 had a blast together. They were just like family in no time.

Friends are so fabulous! New friends are great, but old friends are a unique blessing. Kinda like that old pair of shoes that always feel just right.

Sounds like a good week.

Yes, it's good to have people in your life you share a history with.

(But I have to tell you - it took me a minute with the PG thing - I thought you were talking movie ratings!)

You are very lucky to have a lifetime friend like this.
