Yay! I did it! I was able to give a gift to someone OTHER THAN my "immediate" family! Well, he is my BFF, but still! That counts, right? My gift today was buying lunch for a friend. I enjoy my time with him and appreciate that he always has an ear to listen, a kind word of encouragement, and a big stick to fight off anyone that hurts me! Lol! Just kidding...sort of! :-) Actually, I know he always has my best interest at heart and that's one of things I love about him! He is my biggest defender and also willing to tell me when he thinks I'm wrong or disagrees with me. A true friend! He's there in good times and bad...okay, okay, enough about him! I was delighted to buy him lunch and hope it showed him a small bit of my appreciation for ALL that he does for me!
