30 Days of Beauty-Day 19: Lunch with a Friend

There’s something special about having lunch with a friend.  It may be a commonplace occurrence for many, but it’s worth stopping a moment to think about why we treasure this experience so much.  There is a certain beauty about having a friendship where you can share everyday happenings and feelings.

Every Wednesday, a friend and I try to meet for a late lunch.  I look forward to meeting her each week to catch up on what’s going on in our lives.  I believe that we both value our time together since we change our luncheon dates to other days of the week if we unavoidably can’t get together on a particular Wednesday. 

We never lack for something to talk about.  First, there is a genuine caring for each other.  Second, we have a lot of the same friends and social engagements.   Last, we have a lot of common interests.  These form a stream of never-ending conversation.  We laugh a lot and find a great deal of joy in our friendship.  I am looking forward to our next lunch!

Have you found your joy today?
