I have to share my wonderful day yesterday. I stayed in my PJ's. I had one of those "female friends" moments. I had a plan for lunch. I wanted to go to lunch. Without being overly graphic, there are one or two days a month where I simply need to stay home....and yesterday was one.
I was to meet a NEW FRIEND for lunch. We'd communicated online. We'd met once in person. I felt terrible but called and told her my dilemma. I told her I planned to stay in my PJ's and sip raspberry tea. I hung up, hoping that she'd know I really DID want to spend more time with her and that God would open the door for us to spend more time together at a later date.
She called me back in five minutes. She suggested she and her twins come to visit instead of us going out to lunch. She brought pastries from a Japanese Bakery I'd not heard of, we sipped tea, visited....and I stayed in my PJ's. I'm not mentioning her name, because I didn't ask her how she feels about being mentioned in blogs...and I don't share my friends faces and names without their permission.....don't want them to feel exploited. ::grin::
Isn't that sweet? THEN Windy came over. I was on Skype and couldn't talk. She emailed me and is taking Arielle to a party today so that I can spend another day lounging. I tell you...female friendships can be TOUGH - but they can be a touch of heaven on earth as well. Who but my lady friends would understand the treat of staying in PJ's and eating pastries with a girlfriend?
Living all of life before the face of God...
