30 THINGS: ONE THING ORANGE. THE ORANGE SCARF | Okay, this scarf is more coral than orange..sometimes it looks a little pink, like here, but definitely it is in the orange family.
I love this scarf because it is “my” color.
I love it because of who gave it to me.
Every time I wear this scarf I remember my late friend (and co-worker), Kari. She was one of the most generous, caring people I have known. I was blessed, and grateful to have known her, laughed with her, and had the pleasure to work with her.
And, every time I see a stray dog running around our neighborhood, I can hear her voice telling me to pick it up and give it a home. Because that is what she always did. Her last 3 dogs where strays, Pickle, Cyan, and Tripp.
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.”

I have lost many friends and family members in the last six years. Our family was touched by 8 deaths in one year! That was a tough year.
These loving souls went home, taking their friendship with them, but left a lasting impression. These people have touched my life, probably more than they knew. For their friendship, although missed dearly, I am grateful for the short time I had with them. I am grateful for friendship.
