Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. The coffee is on and we are having cinnamon toast this morning. You all know about my Card Group, as I have talked about them over my years of blogging. This past weekend was our annual get away. We go to Pigeon Forge, rent a cabin and just chill. We have been doing this many years. We have so much fun, shopping, talking, eating, laughing and playing games. After almost 30 years we have to laugh at how much we have changed.
It used to be we would stay up half the night laughing, talking, playing games. This would be after a hard days shopping. We love the Tanger outlets, so imagine walking all over that place all day and staying up half the night, hitting it again the next day. Well now we have a plan. We shop one day, go to the cabin for dinner, and are in bed by 11pm.lol Some of the girls shopped more than others this year. I, along with a some of the others had 2 full days in the cabin. When we get back, we have show and tell. You would be surprised how many of us have bought the same thing! I am the oldest in the group and Linda A is the youngest. Somehow age doesn't matter, it is the friendship. I have said before, we have seen one another through marriages, divorce, deaths, births, graduations, promotions, retirements,and one ordained into the ministry. They held my hand during Curtis' devastating illness and death. We are there for one another. By the way, everyone knows us as "The Card Group." We gave a bridal shower a couple of weeks ago and the invitations said, given by, "The Card Group." We are all aging a bit and we have our issues. One has been diagnosed with MS, one has been diagnosed with Diabetes, One needs knee replacement, one has had knee replacement. Me, I had a colitis attack while there.(hadn't had one in 15 months, thought I was cured). So we have a special bond. DO we agree on everything? Far from it. Do we decorate alike? Not at all. Do we love and care about one another and our families? You bet we do. Having friends for so many years is a blessing and I count them as one of my biggest blessings in life.
Another blessing in my life is you coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
