This morning, I got a phone call from a dear friend and it made my day. To call Joan a friend seems pretty silly. She is much more than that. She's a mentor, teacher, counselor, spiritual advisor, boss, girlfriend and so much more. We don't get to see each other as much as I'd like... but the time between visits fades whenever we do check in with each other. She's not high maintenance.... and I know that she'll be there the moment I need her. The best kind of friend to have. Her call today to just "check in" was truly a blessing.
