Why Ruth and I are friends is beyond me, she's trim, athletic, very busy, very involved with her family and friends, and nothing like me at all. (Who is a couch potato, pretty much, anymore) She runs, yeah, like races. She bikes - miles. She walks - miles. Does the boy scout thing even though she's a year younger than I am. She even volunteers her time at the local food shelf. I guess you could say she is the woman I would like to be if only I had it in me.
I bring this up because it's Easter. Every year, Ruth makes dozens and dozens of eggs for a neighborhood egg hunt - in her yard. She also fills plastic eggs with candy and hides them too. Some plain boiled eggs stay in her kitchen for anyone to dye their own personal egg. She bakes fresh bread for her guests to enjoy as well. Her kitchen is open to one and all.

You can understand why I love this lady, as a sister, friend, confidant. Who wouldn't? When we talk every week or two, we talk for hours until the battery is going to die. If I am on the phone and laughing, I'm talking to Ruth.
Y'all have a great weekend!
