Time spent with an old friend is the best time of all, catching up on each other's lives, and chatting about shared adventures.
I got to do just that a day ago, my dear friend has decided to move to be near her children, clear across the country from where she is now.
She has lived here all her life, but moving nearer her children, is a good thing. As she no longer drives.
So we spent a day together, and will hopefully spend more before we have to say goodbye....
But part of her will always be with me, in the memories of the times we spent together and the paintings she has given me. We will still chat on the phone, an write to each other, but that is not the same as hanging out together.
I love her paintings, and she let me select the ones I wanted to have.
This one of the barn is one of my favorites. She has sold many of her painting throughout the years. So I feel proud to own some of them.
I told her now that she is moving out west she will have so many more things to paint out there. And so many more adventures to experience.
I will post more of the painting as time goes on...

  1. You are so right! Sharing time with friends is so special and hard to come by -since our lives seem so busy.
