Special Day...Special Ladies

March 18 is a red-letter day for two very special ladies.

My late grandmother, Lola Desing, who passed away on December 3, 2004, would have turned 92 today. I miss you, Lola!

Another special lady celebrating her birthday is my bestfriend, Joehyda. We met in church twenty-four years ago and instantly became friends. Together with another friend, Hananie, the three of us formed the Ladies Trio. We sang in church services and did a lot of missionary work including prison and hospital ministry.

She is in the Philippines and although we are thousands of miles away, she remains one of those people whom I can always count on through thick and thin. I am blessed to have her as my friend.

Wow, this is a very rare post indeed showcasing the ladies closest to your heart. It's nice to know more about you MsRay especially anecdotes from your past. It's remarkable that after those many years of separation and in spite of the thousands of miles of physical separation, you still remain as bosom friends. That's true friendship indeed. Thanks for the marvelous post. God bless you all always.
