F is for Faraway friends.
I am blessed beyond measure to have friends in faraway places. My daughter is working on her status as World Traveler and last week her travels took her to southern California where she was honored to stay in the home of my blog friend Wanda for a couple of days before taking flight across the Pacific Ocean. (She looks tired doesn't she? Well, for Wanda it was 10 pm but for Bethany, who lives in Eastern Standard Time, it was 1 o'clock in the morning.)
Of course Wanda is not the only friend we have who is far away. Our friend Ben also happens to be far away. He is in the Navy and is stationed in southern California. What do you know! He happened to be in LA on the same week Bethany was there. Wanda and her Dearest were kind enough to invite him to dinner and a round of target practice with those famous "Old Timer" rubber band guns.
I was already blessed to know Bethany had a friend waiting, now I am double blessed because Ben was able to see the familiar face of a friend in a faraway place and take home a bag of Wanda's homemade cookies.
