Friday Friendships ~ Sally

Today I want to share a peek into a Federation Friendship...
GFWC has given me friends from different areas of the world and some become big sisters..
Meet Sally Bensen:
We were introduced in September 2014 in Seattle at the Western States Regional Conference by a dear friend Martha Pittore.  We quickly adapted to each others quick wit and love of seeing people happy...

A few weeks later we were reunited at the Fall Board Meeting In Ontario, our dear friend Carol Lopez was getting married the next month so we threw her a surprise bridal shower in the hotel bar, there were many guests and Sally and I interviewed them all and filled a purse that Carol carried down the aisle with tips for a successful marriage.
Having so much fun, Sally traveled up North and spent her birthday with us, and we were reunited many times throughout the year. She is so creative and talented, and makes all around her happy no matter what!

Sally and I share the talent of doing anything for charity... this beautifully decorated tree was donated and decorated by Sally to her Women's Auxiliary Festival of Trees... I tried to win it but I lost out!

Friendships are varied, some are lifelong, some are only for a short while.... I feel as if I have known Sally forever, her family is amazing, our Federated Sisters are so inspiring and we just get each other!
Love my giggle pal!
