Good Friend

My friend, Gabriele Luijckx, came for coffee this afternoon. It was so good to see her again. We first met in 1989 when their family moved here from Germany and I tutored the children in English. I also tutored Gabriele for a short time. Her son, Philipp, was here for supper one evening last week. Such good friends! She’s only here for this one week but they’ll be back. We’ll get together again and I can’t wait! We had such a good time reminiscing about when they lived here, then bringing each other up to date on our selves and our families. She showed me pictures of Marie-Christine’s beautiful wedding. Friends also came into our conversations. What a great afternoon we had. Good friends are a gift from God.

My wonderful friend, Gabriele.

    It is so neat to have a long time friend like that. Treasured blessings in this life. Glad you could get together. I’m learning that you have many talents Mrs. Archer, teaching language is a rather outstanding one, and your friend was blessed.
