A Friend From the Garden of Life

Again I am using my favorite artist Mary Engelbreit to express my thoughts about my friend Bev. My garden of life contains many flowers I call friends and she is truly a kindred spirit.I facilitate the writing retreat with Bev. The two of us posed on our cabin steps before we left McCall. Bev is on the left, I am on the right. We met three years ago when I attended this retreat. We share a love of writing, family, gardening, camping, drama, good wine, good food, and good books. She has helped me grow as a writer. She listens to my words and gives me honest feedback. She has shared book titles, recipes, and stories from her home country of England. We have traveled the road to McCall and back three times and each time have deepened our friendship. Bev, as you head to England tomorrow have a safe journey. Enjoy your dear family and friends across the pond. Thanks for your friendship.

  3. I think sharing common interests and activities, and working together on them, is such a great way to bond a friendship together. It's great that your writing brought this reward into your life.

    Have you ever visited Bev in England? I bet you girls would have a grand time!

  4. I loved this picture. It strikes me that it would be a great picture for a calendar; in fact, wouldn't it be a great thing, a Friends calendar? 12 months of the absolute best in life?

  7. What a great tribute to your friend! You are so lucky to have each other. I don't know where I'd be without my friends. The long time ones who have been down the same roads with me - and the newer ones I meet along life's road - all make me a better me.

  8. Great picture. It's nice to have a "bosom buddy" to share the things that are close to your heart. Congrats on running the retreat together!

  9. Thanks for the kind comments. What a great idea to do a calendar. My niece surprised me and went around and took pictures in my garden , then put them together for a calendar for Christmas. I could do that with her help! lol
