"One is not born a woman,
one becomes one."
-Simone de Beauvoir

Yesterday, I received an email response from my long-time friend Jan. For many years - far beyond a ten-finger count - we have made time to commemorate each other's birthdays. The celebrations have taken on a precious jewel-like quality glimmering across time - we have met both in joy and sorrow. Life has naturally defined us; but, together as friends, we have created a delightful, sweet harmony of kind consideration. We owe our friendship a debt of gratitude... within it's composition we have found added grace to become better women...

Who are the friends who have blessed you with finer definition and gifted you with a grateful heart?

What a sweet picture of a new little girl with her Grandma and lovely words of what a forever friendship means. May your friendship with your beautiful granddaughter be filled with all that is holy and pure. Love everlasting. Friends forever.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
