A gift is as a precious stone....Proverbs 17: 8

Clarisse, our neighbor was getting ready for her 71st birthday party yesterday when I quickly shot this candid..

I first met Clarisse shortly after my husband and I bought our hobby farm in the country, in 1973....I would turn 30 in a few months, didn't know a soul in the neighborhood and feeling a little isolated...Clarisse, was 32 at that time...and I remember she rode over on her bicycle carrying a glass jar of vanilla pudding with one hand to introduce herself and welcome me to the neighborhood...I was impressed that she had such perfect balance on her bike on our hilly driveway.. We've been close friends ever since...A good friend is truly a precious gift... I've also felt privileged to know her family ... Of all of the pictures I shot yesterday, this is my favorite..
