Back in April, when Derrick and his family came down for a visit, Brittney accompanied Judy and I on some of our early morning adventures. It was fun sharing not just our adventures with Brittney, but also our long- enduring friendship. One morning after a particularly lengthy hike, Brittney made the following comment to me: "I need a Judy".
I knew exactly what Brittney meant.
*Everyone needs a friend who makes everyday just a little brighter. (See previous posts: Adventures with Judy)
*Everyone needs a friend who listens. (Even at nauseam.)
*Everyone needs a friend who tells them the way it is. (She always says it in a kind way and I know she still loves me regardless of my flaws.)
*Everyone needs a friend who will show up where they are needed and works harder than you do. (What would we have done without her at Daniel and Emily's wedding luncheon and both receptions?!)
*Everyone needs a friend who loves your family almost as much a you do. (She would do anything for any member of my family.)
Yes, everyone does need a Judy in their life. A Judy just makes life better!
