A friend and I have a standing date every Thursday morning at 5:30 a.m. We both drag ourselves out of our warm beds, pull layer after layer of clothing on and head out from our respective houses to meet one another halfway. From there we wander around the neighbourhoods of our city until the time on my friend's cell phone reminds us that our time together must end and that we must head home to prepare for the day. I am grateful that we've carved out this time in our week to be together, to get caught up on one another's news, to wax philosophical at times about this or that. It keeps us connected and our friendship strong. Here's to you dear walking friend!! This is my entry for the One Powerful Hour challenge this week.
