I had an entire long afternoon to myself this week. I spent most of it on the phone with a long lost friend, who found me through this blog of all things! Of the three close girlfriends I had during my teen years, she is the only one still living. To talk to her after sixteen years, was amazing. She and I have quite a history and the fact that our stories ended up with happy endings is nothing short of a miracle. I’ve been happy all week, so very happy.
When Jonny and the kids arrived home on this evening, they found me in the backyard, taking pictures of our dogwoods, a smile on my face. Last year they didn’t bloom, a late frost I think. This year they’re beautiful.
