First Time Friends at '50' ~ Fabulous!

It is so encouraging to have friends whom I've known for more than 30 - 50 years. Those girls I grew up with way back in the days when trick or treating was an all night event and we came home with pillowcases FULL of candy and homemade goodies that we really could eat. The ones that time and distance tried to separate but facebook and blogs have reconnected. The ones that know everything about me and still love me.

Then there are the ones you have known throughout your young married life and the years when you raised your children together. It wouldn't have been so much FUN going through THOSE years without some special girlfriends in your life. Communication with them may be different today but not a week goes by without connection of some sort and always plenty of laughs when we look at our kids now and reflect on how we got here.

And now, being mature and all grown up *giggle*, I have had the pleasure of making new friends.

Over the past year and a half I have met and made some wonderful new friends through this blog. I cannot imagine life not knowing these girls. One such friend made a trip to my home town this past week and I had the honor of having lunch with her.

We both turned '50' last year and are celebrating life through loving our families, blogging and being the best grandmothers on earth :) Oh, Yes we are!!!!

Meet my friend Connie from Connie Turned 50.

What a fun time we enjoyed talking as though we had known each other for years. Making our waitress wait forever for our order because we just didn't have time to look at the menu and then wait some more because we didn't want to leave.

Connie is sweet, down to earth, loving and a family girl. She is funny and genuine. I love her blog ~ all about family and life ~ please stop by and meet her some time, you will be glad you did.

Considering New Friends With Joy, Cindy


  1. There is nothing like good, true friends, new and old. This was such a fun, sweet post, Cindy!
    I don't know what I'd do without my friends. :)

  2. I know Connie, too, I visit her site once and again. I think I've failed to keep her on my blogroll...the only way I can remember to visit others.

    Blogland has provided me also with great friends I would've never known had it not been for cyberspace.

    This is a very sweet post.

    Love the pic.

  3. I love when I read this stories. Blogland friends are the best.

  4. Hey Cindy...what fun meeting you too! And did feel like we had been friends for a long time and maybe a long lost sister. I could have talked with you all afternoon. We will surely do it again! I am just now caught up with my life back at home and have a free day tomorrow. I started blogging about my trip with my mom tonight and what great memories. Next time I will bring my mom along so you can meet her. She would love you too!

    Have a good week! Love ya, Connie


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
