All In A Day...

I love making new friends and I respect people for a lot of different reasons...
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day...

As Saturdays go, yesterday was quiet for a change, but at the same time interesting.  This is the time of the year when friends from Norway start visiting, all of them looking for a little bit of sunshine here in Florida.  Can't blame them.  Florida is probably on of the few places right now with warm weather all year round.  Yes, this is a beautiful time of the year to be here.

Almost Christmas and the sun is shining and people are sun tanning at the beach.  It's no wonder many Norwegians and people from all over the world come here.  
On our way to visit the friends, the first thing Arvid says to me is, "you don't have to hug everyone yo meet, you know."  I look at him and say, "of course you don't, but I probably will."  I love Christmas.

On our way to meet with friends.  Always a good time.  Little bit of fun, little bit of business.  Over drinks, we chatted and I was introduced to a  new "friend"

A girl I just met, but we took a liking to each other instantly.  She's younger than me, she is Norwegian.  Studied in the US and lived in New York and other US States.  Needless to say that I found her very interesting.  I found myself talking with her more than anyone and before I knew it my phone went "ping." She had just friended me in Facebook.  Strange how sometimes you meet someone and instantly something clicks and before you know it, a pretty friendship is soon about to blossom.  

Happy Holidays from Florida.
In our brief time together I saw in her an independent and strong woman.  Qualities I admire.  A mind of her own a person who is not afraid to say what she means.  Totally self sufficient. Many possess these same qualities, but not everyone is also nice.  She is very pleasant, very nice.   By looking at her one would never believe the kind of responsibilities she has.  Self made and her own boss.  Yes, I find this woman very interesting and I look forward to our new friendship.  You never know maybe when in Norway we will see each other.  In the meantime, she's just having fun in Fort Lauderdale.

Today will be a relaxed day.  As always a few chores, calls to family and soccer.  Soon my parents will be visiting us.  Very excited about this.  Today we will stock up the fridge with quite a few things for them.  Fun relaxing day.  Just what a Sunday should be.

Enjoy your day everyone and make it a great one!  

When you wake up in the morning look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself your going to have a great day, you will see the difference...
