a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.
When I left Rhode Island, I left not only family behind, but some wonderful friends. My friend Joan....we worked together for almost 20 years...had morning break and lunch together everyday. Lucille...she called me her side-kick.We worked together the last 5 years I was in RI....sat side by side in our office. Needless to say, I missed them. Yes, there were snail mails, emails and phone calls, but not the in person contact that I relied on. We shared thoughts and laughter and tears...and food. These last 4 years I became friends with Linda..I call her Ziz because there are just so many Linda's in my life. We live in the same community, a courtyard away and we go to 2 needlecraft groups together. We get along very nicely. She has become a friend. When I needed a thread for one of my challenge projects she never hesitated to go a little out of her way to get it for me yesterday...what she did do was also pick me up a gift...a new project... for no reason except she thought of me. So of course...I will add it in to the challenge, make an adjustment to my plans, just because Ziz gave it to me.
So, follow me over to my other place ...come along.....
