God’s Answer to a Dysfunctional Family is Great Friends

Today, we spent a great day with old friends. Bob and Shirley have been friends with us since before we were married. I grew up next to Bob and George was friends with Shirley all throughout school. These are the kinds of friends that join you for the fun times and carry you through dark times. We are very blessed in the friends department, because people are blessed to have even one friend like this and we have many.

Today, we met up about noon and took a hike together. Hiking is something both of our families enjoy doing, but clearly we each have put on a couple pounds and are a couple years older, because we were quiet satisfied with our hike today which was nowhere near as long as we usually take. After a couple mile hike and lots of conversation and laughter, we came home for burgers. It is great to have friends that you can sit down and not worry about a thing. Shirley helped me in the kitchen and Bob and George cooked the burgers.
