My goodness gracious, today we find ourselves in the thriving metropolis of Clovis New Mexico. In all my born days I would never have put this town on the map of places I love to visit, but lo and behold, it is there.
We have had the great fortune to meet and associate with a darling couple that are now listed as some of our good friends. Steve and Linda are 'good people' and we have been guests in their home.
I am finding the older I get, the more I appreciate the value of having good friends, and I marvel that I have been blessed to find and associate with such people.
I used to have the thought process that people 'annoy' me, and to some degree I still harbor this incorrect notion, but meeting people the like of Steve and Linda and Larry and Wilma have led me to believe I have been too hasty.
These dear people have enriched my life and helped me develop a kinder and gentler attitude towards those that I have not had the good fortune to get to know yet.
Maybe I have more of my mother in me then I thought! Go figure!
