Spontanaiety

 
Jennifer, Tracey and Denise


Over the weekend I read on Facebook that my daughter (center) and her friends, who are also my late best friend's daughter on the right and niece on the left were meeting at a local bakery before going to antique shops.

Rose and I used to do that before we went to yard sales. These young women are carrying on our tradition. Were they ever surprised to see me walk in and join them at their table. Each of them hold a special place in my heart. 

I shared old time stories and told them things they didn't know. As we rehashed old memories, these gals made new ones. It warmed my heart to surprise them and spend time with them. I will tell you this, some things never change. Tracey and Denise are still the giggle girls. They giggled through childhood, into their teens. Some days giggling is the only way to get through the trials and tribulations of adulthood. We spent an hour together and then they went on their way. Mid day our texts crossed: So enjoyed our time together; had so much fun.

It was!

You are so lucky to be able to see them at a moments notice! I miss my kids so much this winter. I can't go anywhere during the camping season. Just have to wait for them to come here.

I wish I were closer to my nieces, sisters, and old friends. What fun to do things with them. But a whole lotta country separates us - me in the east, them in the west. Thank God for the Internet! Love this, Linda.

It was a great morning shared by those I hold dear to my heart. We enjoyed talking about old times, laughed, giggled & ate sweets. We certainly need to do this more often :-)

And I'll bet you didn't even wear gray sweatpants with a hole in the knee like my mom! And still managed to have fun.

Is this the daughter and niece of your friend from Boston who was ill? I'm sorry to hear it. It must have been very bittersweet for you. Mostly sweet, I hope.
