One of the most delightful afternoons of this Christmas season was spent at a dear friend's house. I call her Christina.
We have known each other for a long time.
She decorates her charming house to the rafters for Christmas.
It's always tasteful, elegant and artistically done.
Christina loves collies and has two of her own, Levi and Maddie.
She also uses a lot of collies in her decorating.
She is a wonderful cook, too, and served a shrimp and scallop dish with Panko bread crumbs on a bed of spinach. So yummy!
She is a dear person who loves to laugh and make others join in with her.
Here she is----my dear Christina. She even consented to having her photo shown in this post! What a gal.
To be able to make people laugh is a gift and a fine one, at that!
She snipped a couple of pine branches to place on the napkins at our luncheon.
Isn't her fruit centerpiece pretty, too?
She has little Christmas trees in the kitchen and dining room and the bigger one in the living room.
This Christmas season, I am grateful for this dear and loving friend, and for all my friends.
They are special gifts from God and must be loved and appreciated.
This life goes by fast and friends are those who shine light throughout the darkness.
They are our own, personal treasures.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT ONE FRIEND YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR THIS CHRISTMAS?
