I was thinking today while riding my bike how very lucky I am. Not only have I been blessed with living here in the desert, but I have had the joy of making wonderful friends. When I left San Jose, I left behind two very close friends, that I still miss to this day. Friendships take time to build, it is a give and take. I have heard it said that if you have a handful of really good friends consider your life blessed. As I rode through Indian Wells today, I thought of all of my friends that I have made here in the desert. I know that I have at least 20 that I could call in a moment and they would be here for me. Wow, I am so thankful for each of my friends. I know that I gain my strength from my girlfriends.
Last night on Facebook I got one of my college roomates found me and we had such a nice talk. I met Fran when I was only 17 and my sophomore year of college we were roommates. It was great reconnecting with someone from your past.
So…to all my friends (from years gone by and to my new friends) thank you for adding depth to my life. I love each and every one of you!
