I just returned from a 1 1/2 hour walk with a friend I haven't seen in a few months. Talk about lifting my spirits! The combination of good girlfriend chatter, bright sunshine, temperatures in the 40's, and brisk walking was just the thing I needed.
Although we haven't seen each other in a while, we quickly fell back into our easy conversation. She is one of those friends with whom I can share anything, and we picked up where we last left off, both remembering what was happening in each other's lives and eager to find out the latest news.
What a treasure a friend is!
