The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith...Galatians 5:22

This afternoon my husband and I were invited to our neighbor, Clarisse's place...and we helped celebrate her 70th birthday. We are not related, but they think of us as family. This is just part of the group on this picture. She had 16 of her family relative members there in attendance.

We have known Clarisse and her family since we moved to the country
and at that time I was only 29 and she was 32...How time flies..We have
been the best of friends all of these years. We spent lots of times
going back and forth to each others houses and she is one of the
sweetest people one could have for a friend.

The first time I ever met Clarisse she rode her bike over, carrying a glass jar
of vanilla pudding....I remember that I was impressed she didn't tip over on her bike as our driveway was hilly, bumpy and full of ruts.

I dedicate this page to Clarisse who is sitting directly behind me with the coral colored blouse on this picture.

    What a nice story and a good reason to own a camera. I agree with Don. Having a friend for most of your life is a blessing. (I am thinking I could probably find three bridge players in that group. I would be the fourth. LOL)
