For the past 5 plus years I have had a yearly New Year tradition. I give a calendar to a friend who has made a positive difference in my life. In past years I usually get identical calendars with the other person, but this year I got my “My Year to Grow” Calendar ahead of time.
This year my inspiration was Paige. Paige and I worked together for 3 years. She has always been bright, cheerful, and positive even on those days when she was not feeling 100%. She has been a true friend to me through many ups and downs. This fall, I started a new job, but we have continued to stay in touch and have grown even closer as friends.
I decided to give her a little gift with her calendar to celebrate her belated birthday/Christmas/New Year! A few weeks ago she mentioned that she has started coloring advanced coloring books so I thought this “Posh Coloring Calendar” was perfect for her. In the past I usually got wall calendars, but this was even better. It has monthly, weekly, and daily pages.
The older I get the more I realize how valuable and rare friendship is. I feel so blessed to have the friends that I do.
