I meant to be lazy today but the day had other plans for me — it has most of the time I don't know why it surprises me every time.
As soon as I've sent out my first Advent mail on December 1st, mail start to pour in. It is so much fun to catch up — but it does take time... With some of my friends I have an ongoing conversation while I probably would lose contact with others if it weren't for the Advent calendar.
I love the mix of friends — from Paul I've known since we were 1 years old to Birgitta a fellow weaver who found my name on the web and invited me to a meeting for weavers this spring. It is so much easier to stay in touch these days when most people have a computer.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when
he discovers that someone believes in him and is
willing to trust him with his friendship.
