Bonnie — thank you. This was beautiful and timely. I have been reconnecting with old friends over meals, growth and outdoor time. It’s been a beautiful week and this finessed my week even further. I look at friendships as a gift. I have had all types of those friendships. I’ve had a lot of seasonal friends and when we move on from the friendship I often wonder of I should have done more.Thank you for your kindness and generosity with your listeners and readers. For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven ❤️.
