A friend is like an extension of the hands of God. My friend, Sue is like that to me. She is always there for me and my family. Most of the time I don't have to tell her anything, she just knows what to do. I feel very blessed to have her not only to benefit from her goodness but also to have a close reminder of how I should be to her and to others around me. I value her friendship not only because she is of help to me but most importantly the presence of someone I can trust and share a part of my life with.
My friendship with Sue started when Brahms and Marcus were in first grade. The two became friends and so Sue and I did. Eventually there were two families doing things together. It helped that we both have three children who are of similar ages and husbands who can discuss technology in depth. Ever since the children were in elementary school we spent Easter dinner and egg hunt together - rain or shine. But now that some of the older kids are living farther away and/or working, it has become more difficult to have a complete-family egg hunt. But who knows, maybe one day we can have all children together again who knows when) and we'll do what we used to do for the sake of the gone by days. :)
