I often say that the best kind of surprises in life are the ones in which you surprise yourself. I invited some friends over this past weekend and it’s not that I’m surprised that they actually came but I do have this feeling of being surprised that I pulled the hosting job off. Folks came, they ate and seemed to really enjoy the food. Everywhere I looked people were talking and catching up with one another. It did my heart good to know that the ladies had a good time and really enjoyed themselves. It’s always humbling for me to feel the light of friendship. Here’s to light and life and longer days and even lovelier nights.
