Back in the late nineties, Dale and Alice started working together in the same RCC building. I met Alice there and we instantly hit it off. Our love for Jesus was the heart binding of friendship.
Today, this Christmas Eve, Alice and Rich stopped for breakfast with us while on their way to Northern Oregon. We took them to White Horse Coffee and Tea where we get the best breakfast in Sutherlin.
Our time together was sweet with laughter and catching up with each other’s lives.
Here we are in Lodi, California with Dale’s folks and two sets of friends show up. Now, I call that blessed.
Being a full-time RVer, it is hard to keep a friendship going because of moving all the time. Yes, we have friends back home and it is easy to keep in touch through email and phones. I guess the same can be said by our RV friends, but meeting face to face doesn’t happen because of being in different states and/or places.
We just spend a day with Janet and Ralph and their grandkids because they flew for a visit from South Dakota. It was fun being with our traveling buddies again and our visit brought back good memories of our times together these last 6 months.
Yesterday we met up with our old bosses from our California job last year. They came to Sacramento for some R & R and called us to get together. We met them in Elk Grove at Red Robin for a late lunch and took up a table for a few hours while we caught up on their summer and job and what we have been doing.
We had a great time remembering and just touching base with them. We hope to spend a week with them next month as we take off for some R & R.
Good friends are the best and very much appreciated especially when being on the road.
Life is good and God blesses us when we least expect it.
