I've always valued good friends and now, as I journey toward a more authentic life, I cherish them even more. People who are willing to support someone as unusual as me deserve standing ovations. They are real friends.
I spent time today with Debbie, one of my best friends in real-life. I met Debbie twelve years ago when we both belonged to a motorcycle club. I liked her immediately and have always wanted to remain her friend.
Reading my blog, Debbie noticed that although my clothing choices are acceptable, my skill at applying makeup is poor. I lack training at makeup and my unguided experiments are sad failures. I flail around like a tween without a clue.
Debbie, being a kind and helpful person, offered to assist me. Today, she instructed me in Makeup 101. She even gave me a little gift-bag of makeup tools and materials. How sweet is that?!
Here are a few pics of the two of us. The best part of the day was not the makeup lesson, it was the time spent with a wonderful friend. Thank you, Debbie!
