Everyone needs a friend like the one I have with Barbara Wester. I love when we get together to play which is never often enough. She is an attorney for the EPA and a mother of two sons (both in high school). I've never been good at receiving and Barbara's enormous generous spirit is helping me overcome this. One of the things that I love about playing with her is that what is mine is hers and what is hers is mine. We don't keep track. We just support one another in every way that we can. I love to watch her free flowing way of creating and while our work is different, we feed each other well. Speaking of feeding, Barbara is also a great cook! Her lunches feed me body and soul. Our play dates are always different. One time we might play with paper and the next time quilt. Sometimes we work on the same things and other times our own projects. We always try to have our Christmas gifts done early and never seem to succeed. "There is always next year!" She also knows me (good and bad) and loves me! We all need a Barbara in our lives and I count her as a true blessing!
