My friend Mo Mo called recently and asked me to stop by her house on the way home. Since I was in the grocery at the moment, I was also asked to pick up some coffee creamer. Even though I have only recently enjoyed drinking coffee, I could understand that creamer was needed before morning. It's hard to find just plain creamer these days. As I was standing in front of the choices, my mind drifted to our friendship over the years. We've known each other literally forever and are more like sisters than friends. While it's great to make new friendships, there's just something about the old ones. Like not having to explain all your 'history' to someone new, old friends just 'get' you. And, believe me, there's a lot about me to 'get'.
When I dropped off the creamer, Mo Mo had a surprise for me. I was instructed not to open it until I got home. I immediately asked if it was food. I had been giving her a hard time lately over her orange candy and the fact that I don't remember getting more than a couple of pieces last year at Christmas. She insists I was given lots more, but I think Mo Mo may be having some memory issues....but that is another story - one that I can be persuaded not to tell upon receipt of a nice supply of orange candy.
Anyway, imagine my surprise when I opened the package and found this beautiful fleece blanket! Mo Mo made it herself! It's beautiful, warm and so soft. I immediately wanted to curl up on the couch with it. Actually, I did just that with a cup of Fireside Coffee. Thanks Mo Mo!

What a great friend, Marge... I'd love that blankie---and like you, I'd curl up on the couch with a nice hot cup of coffee.
