Last night, I was slouched in front of the TV watching The Daily Show with John Stewart when I heard an odd binging noise. It didn’t sound like my cell phone or alarm clock. I finally realized it was my computer chirping at me. My old and dear friend Jay was “Skyping” me from Tokyo. What a treat! We had great fun catching up with one another.
Today another close friend, Peter, is coming from Syracuse to stay for the Memorial Day weekend and tomorrow we are meeting friends to vist the new Modern Wing of the Chicago Art Institute together. We are having dinner with two great couples and on Saturday another mutual pal from Ireland, Michael, arrives to add to the party.
Today, let’s take a moment to thank God for all the great friends who make us laugh and cry, who celebrate with us in the good times and who keep us going in the bad, the men and women who add spice and joy to our lives.
