That's Helen with me. She is a dear friend and classmate from Nursing school, and we had not seen each other for 19 years. So we decided to meet at the mall. I said, don't tell me where you're seated. Just tell me what color shirt you're wearing. She did just that, and of course, it was a BIG mall with an equally BIG food court. My eyes turned as round as saucers when I got there. But slowly I walked. From table to table. Scanning faces. On the look-out for a green shirt, thinking, what in the world did Helen look like now?
Then I spotted a bewildered-looking girl who probably thought she was as lost as the one looking for her. Ha! What a joyous reunion.
I thought I'd post it here because Sir Joey sent me a beautiful sentimental email (the one that has nostalgic music against a picturesque background), and it made me think of good friends, happy memories. You know how it is when you say good bye, and you just can't finish? That's the kind of friend Helen is. Well, I hope you remember one of yours this holiday season and catch up.
It's a good feeling.
