My Harley Stud and I have four very good friends that live right next door to us. We love them dearly and they love us. But sometimes life just gets so hectic that it becomes harder and harder to stay in touch with your friends even though you care for them deeply. We didn't realize how we'd been neglecting these friends until one day last week when we received note from them. It seems that since the holidays we just haven't taken the time to maintain that relationship that is so important to us. But our friends are not the type to be put off easily. They found the perfect way to give us just the nudge we needed to get back to our daily chats over the fence. This is the note we found in the mailbox:
Do you have a relationship that you've been neglecting? Take the time to call, send a note, shoot off an email or just drop in on a friend or relative with whom you've lost touch. Life is too short not to let your loved ones know how much you care. Daisy, Brownie, Hillary and Donkey reminded us of our neglect. I'm afraid we have other friends who aren't quite so bold. I'm going to make it my February resolution to make an effort to stay in touch with loved ones. Because as LiLu says, "New Years resolutions are for kitty cats." Well that wasn't a direct quote but you get the idea.
A brand new large package of carrots was purchased with the infamous Valentine cake and our daily chats have resumed.
