Your life is very busy. You don’t know how you’ll get it all done. Your calendar is booked months out. And then you get the phone call from a close friend’s daughter. She wants to give a surprise birthday party for her mother – in a few weeks and in a town 5 hours away!
What do you say? You say, “Wonderful! How can I help?”.
Friends are one of the most important resources that we have. I got together with other friends from my area who were invited, and we put together a delightful scheme. I invited myself to my friend’s home for the weekend. She was delighted that I wanted to come for a visit. The daughter reserved a villa for the other out of town guests and a restaurant for Friday night. The gang from my area planned on bringing in food for 2 brunches and a dinner. A cake was ordered and was going to be delivered by another friend who lived near the town of the party. We all pulled it off! It was a delightful surprise and meant a great deal to our friend.
And you know what? I came away from that long weekend happy and relaxed and even more ready to tackle all the tasks and chores that awaited my back home.
It’s important to remember our priorities and friends should always have a top billing.
