Thankful Thursday (#17)

Yesterday Marja came to pick me up for a surprise lunch. But first I had a surprise for her. Champagne and a birthday gift: a birth mandala. We have been friends for about 44 years. I am so thankful that we renewed our contact 9 years ago. Now we are closer than ever before. Marja took me for lunch to restaurant "Het Katseveer", which was very elegant! And the food was delicious! Thanks Marja for being my friend and for this wonderful afternoon!
