You know you have too much going on during a birthday week when you forget to go over to a friend’s house after work for port and cheese. That was last week, so I got a do-over and went today after school.
Since the after school writing club had celebrated publishing their stories and poems, and since I’ve chipped away at some of my recent work load, it was good to visit, taste port and swap news.
It was humbling, which means good for me, that my friend had gifts — thoughtful, fashionable things, like a bag, a scarf and a wallet purse…all with a travel theme…and tasteful and lovely. Some people would return the gifts if you forgot to go to their house.
I’m reminded that the most important thing is to love and to be grateful for the people in my life who love me. And, I really like cheese.
