Block # 34~ Friday, August 24

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.
Thomas Aquinas

True friends are blessings, and I am fortunate to have been blessed with beautiful friends.
This past month just confirmed how blessed I am.
First, I reconnected with Patsy. She was the para-professional that taught with me in my Pre-K class in Georgetown, Texas. As part of my Migrant Teacher duties, I would have to drive out to the farms to visit the migrant families and recruit students. Patsy would accompany me on these adventures. She was a great teaching partner.
Then, I was able to visit with Sharon. She and I have been friends since we were three. Even though we have not seen each other in ages, we were able to pick up as if we were still living across the street from each other.
This past week, I met with Nancy. She went to elementary school with Sharon, and we met when we were about 9. We both went to the same high school and the University of Texas. I love to meet with her whenever I am in the Austin area. She is one of the most creative and inspirational people ever!
Nancy brought her grandson over to swim with my granddaughter. My granddaughter enjoys his company. They had fun splashing in the pool.
I also got a chance to meet with one of my Meemaw friends and her granddaughter. Marti and her granddaughter met us at the Meadows Center in San Marcos, Texas. The two girls hit it off right away. They are the same age.
It was so much fun, seeing my friend’s grandchildren interacting and becoming friends with my grandchildren.
The fabric journal entry for this week just had to be about friends. I decided to use the Celtic symbol for friendship on this block.
