I think its rare for a woman to have a group of friends that they would consider family. A group of sisters, brothers, equals. People who you know if you call in the middle of the night for support will be there to help regardless of how late it may be or what they might have going on the next morning. I have been blessed with a group of friends like this. They are my family and I am thankful every day for them.
This weekend was my 37th (*sigh*) birthday. My first birthday without my Dad. I was feeling a little sad Saturday, it just seemed strange that he wasn't here, that I didn't at least get a phone call from him saying "Happy Birthday Old Woman" or something of the like. So I was feeling a little under the weather when Mike brought me to Audrey and Paul's for a party. It was only Paul and Audrey, Mike and myself, and Sali..but I have to say..I had so much fun. It was so nice to know that they thought enough of me to have a get together and celebrate my birthday with me.
It was a fun night, full of dancing and talking and laughing....and a spanking :-P Its a party I will not soon forget, and one I will always be thankful for.
