The least expensive gift to give is your friendship, and caring for one another.. This is the time of year to say Thank you, to Help, to Share feelings, ideas, and for Giving.. Some times the hardest is giving of ones self.. Looking at the years past,, I can say I have been blessed to have many friends.
It is a precious gift, the sharing of oneself.. I have a card file for the Christmas cards sent & received .. some go back to the 1960's. Also I keep the file cards of friends that have passed on.
Might seem strange, but I feel this is a special time to remember them. The fun or the serious moment we shared.
What new friends will the New Year bring? Will I call them friends or acquaintances. Will they be like ships in the night, just passing by..
There are so many wonderful poems and sayings about friendships.. Each one must be held close to the heart..
From my heart to yours, Have a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful, healthy, Happy New Year.

No, we have not found any gold.. Our part of the river is like an ocean beach all sand, and we don't have the equipment/knowledge to look for it. Maybe some day!

Ralph and I did gather another trailer load later in the month.. Now, it is hard, because of all the rain and some snow at the higher elevations, but our house is warm.
