The weeks leading into this Memorial Day weekend were busy beyond busy. I had plans and notions of completing a whole lot more then I did before our guests arrived but settled with what was completed and moved forward. We had one set of guests come in on Friday afternoon to come to the country and get away from it all and find some rest and relaxation here in the wheat fields. Rest and relaxation they found and then later went out to wine taste in the local tasting rooms in town with other friends they were to meet up with later in the day. I was pleased to supply them with a restful and comfortable place for the first leg of their vacation. Our second set of guests came in on Sunday afternoon and had changed their plans to stay in town through the weekend-to instead head home late in the afternoon to get back and settled before his work week began. We had a wonderful few hours together chatting and enjoying each others company. She is my besty and their middle child is my sons besty since kindergarten. When they decided to move to Montana four years ago it was a sad day for all of us. But we hold such a natural friendship that when we come together even with long periods of time without seeing or talking to each other it is as if we had just seen each other the last weekend. We consider ourselves in the company of a very lucky few. I am happy to have been able to have offered peace and serenity this weekend, to have been able to sit and enjoy the company of my very good and true friend and to watch my son and his very best friend unite and play together like they have never been apart.
