Fabulous Friends

I must say, I have the most wonderful friends. They've been really supportive of my writing career, helpful whenever I need anything and lots of fun all the time. Next week my family is off to the beach for a few days but not to the $200 bucks a night mini-suite with the fold out sofa bed and the beach view if you lean over the balcony and crane your neck. This time, one of my awesome friends offered the beachfront condo she and her husband rented for the summer that's twice as big as my house! Yes - a two million dollar condo with every amenity one could imagine. And what is she charging us? Not a penny.
"It's just sitting empty this week," she said. "It would make us feel better if someone were there."
And then there's the friend who hosted my book launch party at her house since mine wouldn't comfortably hold the number of guests I'd invited. I've decided to dedicate my next book to the fab group of women who are so important in my life.
What about you? What terrific things have your friends done for you lately?

My sister (and friend) stepped back and let me have the schooner mirror carving that my dad wanted one of us to inherit from him. She knew how much I love it.

My best friend took me out to lunch as she does once a week and has done for years now. Our once-a-week ritual is a true sanity saver. She spoils me rotten at Christmas/birthday time. On my last birthday she ordered front row tickets to a dream-come-true gala performance of my beloved ballet company in their new home - I was in tears as she went through the ordering process on the phone in her office on our lunch breaks. She just did the same thing recently for her daughter. There's too many wonderful things she does! All with love.

Let me know if your friend needs someone to occupy her condo... you know so it won't sit empty ;o)

I love my friends. They are soooo supportive. Of course they also work into great inspiration. :o)
