a group of six get together for lunch. We take turns picking the restaurant, and we just sit around the table, laugh, and enjoy each other.
Yesterday, Mike and Loretta told me they were going on a Disneyland Cruise. What came out of my mouth next just horrified me.
Why would I even ask such a question?
I'm still distressed over what I asked them....they are our dearest friends, and it was a mean, unkind, unthoughtful thing to have asked.
Later on last night, I went to their house to apologize. I cannot begin to say how difficult it was for me. But, on the other hand, I cannot begin to say how KIND they both were in accepting my apologies; they had not taken offense, and expressed how much they appreciated our friendship.
Oh, there is absolutely nothing like good friends! Thanks, Mike and Loretta, for being our friends, in spite of my wretched tongue!
