She just reminded me today that I was wearing the same sweater the day we met. That’s amazing considering that happened 15 years ago.
I was very involved with a local business organization and her company had sent her to a meeting to check us out. She walked in with a “deer in the headlights” look. My spirit is such that I had to adopt her right away.
Karma made us click immediately. By the time the next meeting came around we were best friends and knew each other’s secrets. Her partner even liked me which was amazing because she was insanely jealous.
We didn’t get much of a chance to mix socially, but we ended up dragging each other to our various groups and associations so we got to spend a lot of time together.
Click to next chapter….she changed jobs and had to give up the club. That, however, had little effect on our friendship. The biggest change came when she split with her partner. She called in a panic about where she was going to stay. It had been an unplanned explosion. I said ”come on over.”
I have a spare room so moving her in was easy. We had a wonderful year together. Each of us has her own world, but there are places where they converge. She doesn’t mind cleaning and loves my cooking. I can spend all day in the kitchen, but the place looks like a hurricane blew thru when I’m done.
She fell in love with a lovely lady in Kentucky who she met on the internet; very fortunate for her. They were online every night for months, then they met, then she moved to Kentucky to be with her soul mate.
I really miss having her closer. I have visited there, which was a great trip, and she comes here often to see her kids. Our lunch yesterday was a good thing. We got to visit, plan our next get together, and eat too much. We’ll continue to communicate by phone and computer in the meantime.
I am just amazed that she remembered the sweater after soooo many years.
