Running around putting a few last minute things away, I made sure the house was looking nice. Having good friends that come over every now and then is always a treat. It had been way too long since we had all gotten together last, and we were looking forward to the visit.
The doorbell rang, and I called out They're here… while I ran to let them in. Grinning as I opened the door, I ushered our friends inside as we already started to laugh and joke. I gave my friend a big hug, as our husbands shook hands. We took the food they had brought to share and after storing it into the kitchen, we all sat down in the living room to catch up, as if her and I hadn't just spoken 10 times earlier in the week. We are friends that go all the way back to high school. In our 30s, it's hard to believe we have known each other half of our lives, yet also very easy to believe it with the jokes,
