Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts in conversation

Our words.

What we say. How we say it. When we say it.

All of the things that make up an important part of our lives…conversation. Some of us have more than others, but needless to say, it is vital to our overall well-being as a human being.

Without good conversation, I think my world would be a very lonely place, and probably not a very healthy one either.

Because of this, I am so thankful for the conversation that I can enjoy…

1. By way of the telephone…thank-you Mr. Bell!

2. In writing, by way of the internet and the mail (although that doesn’t get used too much anymore)

3. But the best, and quite possibly my favorite way, is in person. Face-to-face with my best friend, and preferably, with a good cup of coffee!


These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for.

What are you thankful for?

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?

Time with a dear friend

I had coffee with my dear friend today. I always look forward to our time together. After twenty years of a friendship, we never seem to run out of things to talk about. We’ve been through a lot of life together, and I’m sure that I am a better person because of her.

Life keeps us busy and we don’t get together as often as we would like, but when we do, we’re always able to pick up right where we left off.

She’s a very good listener, listens from her heart and her ears. A true and loyal friend.

I’m so thankful that our paths crossed so long a go, and that we’ve made the commitment to stay connected, even when time and distance make it a bit of a challenge.

Good coffee, great conversation….a perfect combination.
