Dear Ellen,
I am so happy to have met you this winter. If you were ever in Brownie Scouts, I’ll bet you remember the little song: “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold.” We sang this diddy in a round and it could go on and on. I guess I will still remember it when I have forgotten who I am and where I live! 🙂
You seem to be a quiet person. The thing I liked about you right away was your smile and your friendly voice. You are not pretentious.You just let people see who you are and take you or leave you. That is a pleasant way to live.
You are an unselfish person. I noticed how you always wait on people, offering a chair, or something to drink, or your own sweater.You are hospitable and that is a good characteristic in a friend. You invited us all into your home for a visit and made us all feel welcome and at home. I like to know I have friends I could drop in on and they would be glad to see me and not upset.

You must know that I am that sort too, so come visit when you can. I may be a little hard to decipher, but I like people and I love having company. I enjoying getting to know a new friend. I know sometimes those friendships last for years and years. Let’s hope for that!

Love you, Elece
