It doesn't matter that she is ninety three. It doesn't matter that she doesn't go shopping with me, or love the brocante. It doesn't bother her that I hang out with other friends, and do more with them then I do with her. It doesn't matter that I am not related to her, or that she cannot dance, or speak my language, or hear very well... for that matter she doesn't care if we have anything to say at all.
Our friendship isn't based on any of that.
When you have a friend like Annie, a good, down to earth friend, one that makes you feel like you are important, that you matter, and that whatever you do or say it doesn't change a thing about their love for you... Well, then you can see God, and it is gift beyond measure.
Annie my dear wonderful gift from above and beyond.
I am so thankful that Annie's amazing family shares her with me.
Once a month or so, we go to Cassis for lunch or dinner.
Lunch in the winter,
dinner during summer.
We enjoy the view, and love the food.
We hold hands, feel happy, and drink a glass of wine.
She tells me how lucky she is to have such beautiful children. I tell her she is an amazing woman.
I love when Annie laughes, hits my knee with her hand and says, "Corey you are unique." It puts the biggest grin on my face.
Annie walks slowly, but she walks gracefully, aware on every detail and what people are wearing. She notices fashion, she notices beauty, she notices life and embraces it with joy.
A happy soul enjoys the moment.
