The Gifts of Friendship...

Jane Ngui and I met for lunch yesterday.  What we had for lunch was really secondary, although I have to say that my 'main meal' of the day turned out to be a bird sized portion when it arrived and Jane's 'light salad' turned out to be gigantic! Thank goodness it wasn't the food that we had set our heart's upon, but rather it was just being able to spend time together and... chat and chat and chat.  If it hadn't been for the fact that I had a scheduled appointment in the late afternoon, I think we could have just packed up our things and taken the party to my backyard and continued on!  It was fabulous!

Later on in the day, Jane sent me a little message.  She had been looking through The Room to Grow and had seen pictures of Makenna and was prompted to share this...

Cathie...did you know that Makenna in Kikuyu, one of the dialects from Kenya (happens to be mine) means "One who is always happy or smiling..."

What a lovely gift Jane gave me today, the gift of spending time together and the gift of the Kikuyu meaning of my granddaughter's name.  Thank you Jane!
