Today I got the treat of all treats. My friend Linda, from Vegas, visited with me for a few hours. I’ve known her since we were 13. It’s a long time. There’s something that happens when Linda and I get together. It’s a sort of ease and understanding. I love this girl, more than I can say. We don’t live near each other and haven’t for a long time, and because of that we don’t see each other as much as either of us would like, but when we do it’s as if nothing has changed. It fills my soul to see her. She’s that kind of friend for me, as I think I am for her. Linda… I loved seeing you today. So lucky that you could come and be with me for a few hours. Hard not to give you a hug, but I’ll just have to give you a bigger one next time. Friends like you my sweetie are so good for my soul.
