Lunch with Dawn

I had lunch with my friend Dawn today at the Lazy Loaf and Kettle restaurant.  (The Montreal smoked meat sandwich was to die for and I actually went to Safeway and bought all the ingredients to replicate it this weekend!)

I was reading an article last night about relationships and the psychologist who was quoted in the article suggests that humans are "animals that attach" (sounds like a scary monster) anyway, she suggested that humans thrive best when attached to other people. The interviewer asked about single people and her response was that it was emotional attachments not physical attachments. She stated that single people who have a rich social life with deep emotional attachments to friends and family are just fine. phew! good news.

I am profoundly blessed with good friends. Dawn and I meet up once a month, we've been friends for over 10 years and it's good to keep those strong friendships thriving even when busy lives keep us apart.

oh, funny memory. Dawn invited our family out to their cabin one weekend. Our children were dating each other, however, they broke up the night before we all headed out to the cabin but didn't tell anyone. Heehee, they were each at opposite ends of the cabin all weekend, kind of tense for them, but amusing for us when we finally noticed.

Hugging my friend Dawn today was a beautiful moment.
