It’s been two years. Two LONG years I might add!
For many reasons, I have not been able to see my dear friend Lyn for the last few years. I won’t go into the reasons here…. that’s not important. What IS important is that she was able to make a trip to Utah to visit her Mom. Luckily, she asked me to pick her up at the airport and drive her to her Mom’s so we could have some time to visit. Then…. she even invited me to stay over night so we’d have even more time!
Sometimes… people and personalities just click. And we did. Once we got to know each other, we have just become good close friends. Unfortunately we live in different states so we don’t get to see each other often. Usually, it’s at least once a year at the Senior Games in St. George, but the last two years she hasn’t been able to come. So this visit to Utah was a welcome and fun surprise!
It was a delight to meet her Mom and her sister and brother in law. We had such fun talking and catching up. She always makes me happy! I just wish we would have had more time. We both know that if we lived closer together ‘we’d get in so much trouble’, as Lyn puts it. Not bad trouble…. just little trouble.
Well… I had a brilliant thought today on the way back home from her Mom’s house. How about I go get her a day early (late in the day, of course), and we drive back to my house. On the way back, we can stop and see some other friends we know from the Senior Games, then, she can come stay over night with me and I will take her to the airport the next day!
I’m so excited that after discussing it with her Mom she is going to do that. It will be fun, once again! But I better get out my crochet hook in the meantime….. time to make more hats…. for friends this time!
I Am Grateful! How Are You?
