Egads! I missed posting yesterday. I’m going to forgive myself for missing a day, and I almost certain that no one noticed. I might have even gotten away with it had I not just admitted it. By the way, according to my spellcheck, “egads” is not a word; according to Google, it is.

Another great friendship was formed over the last few years, and she too, moved away. For me, making a connection with another person is fairly rare, and when it happens, I don’t like for it to be uprooted. But it was…uprooted…life happens, and she and her family live far away from Alabama. She called me a few weeks ago and told me she’d be in town this week, and we planned a night for us to just catch up. Last night was that night, and we spent a few hours over dinner talking non-stop. It was so great to see her…when I got home, it was getting late, and when I got into bed, I remembered I hadn’t made my daily post. I didn’t even care.

At the restaurant, there was a lady sitting a few tables from me, right in my line of vision. I knew she looked vaguely familiar. I figured if I asked her name, I’d figure out who she was, but I didn’t, of course. When she and her husband were leaving, she stopped by my table and asked me if I was Gina. I told her that was my sister…she was Gina’s third grade teacher! Considering that my sister is in her 50’s now, that’s been a day or two! She was still a teacher when I was at that school, but she never taught me. I was impressed with her memory (even if it was just a little faulty).
Have a good Friday Eve!
