Won't you sit down at my table, sweet friends,
and enjoy a cup of hot coffee with a Snickerdoodle treat :)
The Snickerdoodle Bars recipe is at the end of the post.
They are OH SO good!
The joy of friendship is a treasure we ought to cherish. . .
We ought to nurture it and treat it with tender-loving care.
Friendship is not something we should take for granted,
but rather hold on to with gratitude and love.
Friendship is sweet to the soul
and good for the heart.
So sit with me for a while, dear one, and we shall enjoy the delights of friendship,
and we shall revel in the wonder and beauty of becoming kindred-spirits.
Blessings and love to you on this beautiful day!
The lovely mug was a gift from my dear friend, Sylvia, who blogs at
Sylvia was one of my first followers almost two years ago when I started blogging
and we have become good friends ever since :)
