GRATEFUL FOR FRIENDS

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

I have enjoyed reading many of the gratitude posts this week.  I did not have time to participate but I want to add my comments.

Like many in Active Rain we have friends and we care for each other.  Phyllis and I were in our house in Florida but arranged to be back in Armonk because one of our friends who moved away would be in town.

Karenne and Richard Koo have been friends with all of us since our daughters were in 2nd grade.  Karenne and Richard moved to Tucson AZ about four years ago but returned to have Thanksgiving with their daughter who is in Washington DC.

Having friends is very important and we support each other.  We are grateful to have our friends and so happy that we are able to share joys together.  Karenne (seated far right) and Richard (taking the picture) have announced that their daughter is engaged and will be getting married in Washington DC next September 3rd.  We will all be there along with all of our daughters.

Like the song goes you gotta have friends.

It is great to have long time friends and to keep in touch with them as you have Grant Schneider . Good, long term friends are rare and should be treasured.

Hi Grant Schneider - I just finished readying Kat Palmiotti's post about family and it seems that your friends are more like family.  What a wonderful thing to have.  Happy Thanksgiving!
