A Special Tradition

“Friends are God’s way of taking care of us.”

Taking time out from the busyness of the holidays and spending time with friends can’t be beat.  Each year women with whom I have walked many miles gather for breakfast to celebrate the gift of friendship.

The table is set,  napkins folded with care for the gals who will soon sit there.

Holiday trees and flowers in small vases rest on gold mesh in just the right places.

There’s a touch of whimsy in the Santa plates

that with traditional glassware make perfect mates.

French toast is baking, herbed eggs wait to be served.

Hopefully, nothing goes wrong to throw me a curve.

But if it does, nobody’ll care because what’s important is the time we share.

Dishes: Bella Ceramica

Glassware: Spode and garage sale etched glass
