The Treasure of Time Well Spent

Take some time to spend with a friend. It’s easier said than done for many of us with busy schedules pulling us in many directions, but it’s very important.

Make a lunch or dinner date with a friend you haven’t seen in a while and before it’s over get another date on the calendar for in a month or two. Go shopping with a pal and help each other pick out Christmas gifts or better yet each donate a few bucks to spend on a child or family in need and go shopping together to see what you can find. Or invite a friend over to bake Christmas cookies to munch on at the time and to share with others. It doesn’t have to be a big production, just sometime to spend together.

Today, my friend Irene and I went shopping for children’s books at the local book barn. We’re going to donate these tomes as part of a literacy project in our area. While she covered the wee ones, I focused on the teens and tweens with some classics – Jane Austen and Edgar Allan Poe – as well as some science fiction, mystery and a few teen romance. It was a great way to spend time together while also helping someone in need.

Who do you want to spend some time with?
