A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
One of the nice things about living in one place for a long time is maintaining friendships.
My friend Greta and I have known each other since our oldest children were in elementary school. These “kids” are now 24. We have laughed and cried together many times. We still do.
Greta has gotten chickens from us and supplies fruit and vegetable scraps to both flocks. I bring surplus food to her from the volunteer work I do.
Last Saturday, upon returning from an early morning meeting, I discovered that Greta had dropped off a bag but not for the chickens.
It was a gift bag and in it were two pair of slippers – one for me and one for Rachel. They are wonderful!I love the slippers especially now that the weather has turned cold. However, I value the gift of friendship most of all.
Oh sweet Sara, yes a precious friendship like ours is a gift from God to be treasured!
Yes, yes it is!
Do you remember the old Girl Scout song? “Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.”
Yes I do ;-) It is the perfect way to describe friendships.
