The Perfect Weekend
This weekend was a perfect weekend of rest and relaxation. My friend Denise asked awhile back if I would go away with her for a girls weekend. Denise and I have very similar personalities where we can sit and read and be quiet for hours... We also have some great conversations and see eye to eye on a lot of things and those things that we don't... we still respect each others opinions.
We went to a quaint little village called Pigeon Lake. I love it here. We spent time at the spa, shopping at the little shops, eating at one of my favourite restaurants, The Eco Cafe. We read, she studied, I prepared lists, we watched a Dr. Purvis video and we sat in the hot tub each night while the snow fell. We even took in a warm Yoga class.
I am very guarded when it comes to my friendships and there are very few people that I truly trust. But Denise is a true and forever friend. We started our first adoption journeys together and are now waiting to bring yet another adopted child home in the next while. Denise is waiting for Giselle from Haiti and we pray she will be home this summer!
A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be. ~Douglas Pagels
