Dear Friends


This is Iola and Rene.  No, they aren’t a couple.  They are both my friends.  Rene is 93 and lives in a personal care home, and Iola is a little bit older than Rene and lives in her own home.  We three went to Pine Valley Cemetery where Iola’s parents and grandparents are buried.  Rene is not quite as steady on his feet as Iola is and when we got out of the car, Iola linked her arm through his to give him more stability for walking on the uneven ground.

I really like this picture.  Although they don’t know each other well, this picture shows the ease of friendship, getting to know one other, taking care of one another, and staying active.

We need good friendship, for today and for our tomorrows.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Glad also that Judy found you through my blog. We can’t have too many friends in this life we live.

    It’s always a pleasure to see you, my friend. xoxo
