We should do this more often

Do you know this feeling? Whether it's grabbing a cup of Starbucks, enjoying a meal together, taking a walk... after being with friends, it's that feeling you have when the time comes to a close, but you wish it didn't have to. Oh, what a blessing those times are, and I enjoyed just such an evening last night.

Several of us gathered to celebrate birthday. There was great food at a local restaurant, there was birthday cake and coffee afterwards at someone's house, there were stories and more stories and oh, was there ever a lot of laughter.

As the hour gets later people start to head home, and the mood becomes bittersweet. Sweet because it's been so good for our souls to share some hours of of our lives together, exchange stories, and laugh and laugh and laugh. Bitter because our lives are busy and these times are all too few.

Hugs. Thank you's. Happy Birthday! one more time.

We should do this more often.


  1. Well, I know I always enjoy when you swing into Phoenix that we meet up. I always have a good time. Keep up the blogging! Jazon

  2. I'm very much looking forward to our get together. We can stay up late and drink mocha's and laugh the night away (okay late night meaning 10pm or so!) JK. Glad you had a great time.

  3. RE: to sittintall
    And it will have to be decaf so we can still fall asleep come 10 or 11! Does that mean we're old? *Sigh*

  4. Yes, those are certainly the BEST kinds of times! How great that you were able to do that. (:

    Whats this talk about getting together with that tall one? I'm sooooo jealous!

  5. You know, I really just enjoy your writing! Do write more! And I agree, it's so easy to forget that connecting with friends and family is oh so important!
