Friends With Benefits

I have great friends, I really do. I’ve got the kind of friends who visit me at work, just to say hi. They are generous and thoughtful, call to see if I want to have lunch, and drop by unexpectedly with gifts.

Take Robin for example:

Also, she has one of my dream jobs, so I look up to her and plan on “using” her as a resource in the future. She dropped by the other day with a nice little box of truffles… No small gift, mind you, from chocolate central here in Anchorage. chocolates.jpg

And then there’s Becca:

She’ll drop by my office with a jar of skittles or other little gems, like these everlasting flowers: a constant reminder of friendship and sunshine and happy things in life.

And let’s not forget Jon, my wonderful and thoughtful boyfriend:

Ahhh….. much the sentiment I feel toward these friends.
