The test of a true friend

A true friend listens when you are in pain. :) A true, true friend, will also provide a darling son who entertains your many daughters with thrilling new games, such as “spray the hose.”

Further, a true friend will have recently dug up trees from her yard, just in time for your daughters to turn an exciting game of “spray the hose” into a new game, entitled “let’s make a mud hole.”

The true, dear friend will then allow your children to get INTO that mud hole.

But the true, iron-clad test of a true friend? She will chase your children, playing “spray the hose” with them again, trying to remove the remnants of the mud hole. All while in white linen pants. She will then allow your children (who are literally mud up to their armpits) to enter her house, and even her lovely garden tub.

Blessed am I this week, for a true friend. :)

    Awwwww! Awwwwww! Thank you so much for immortalizing our fun day! :) I'm not sure that a true friend hangs up on you mid-saga retell and then texts at midnight… But I'll take credit where I can! :)
