I enjoy being around friends who remind me of the simple joys of life. I spent last Saturday night surrounded by wonderful friends. We caught up on life, laughed over orders of sushi, laughed at how easy it was to squeeze 9 of us into a booth. We talked about traveling, friends, family, and work. Then we moved on to to a coffee shop only to discuss apartments, the craziness of our pasts, our relationships with God, our struggles to live the day to day life. I had my doubts about moving back to this area, but sitting amongst these fine women I was quickly reminded that no matter where I am in this world it is the company that truly makes it worth while.
