A couple of weeks ago my friend Crystal sent me an email asking if I had plans for November 13th. She was going to be passing through my city. Would I be able to meet for dinner and/or breakfast?
Of course I said yes before I checked my calendar. Thankfully when I did check, I didn’t have anything else planned.
This is my second visit from Crystal in as many months – a real treat since we don’t live in the same country. Granted, the Canadian border is only about three hours away. But when you haven’t really driven in almost two years, even a three hour drive can seem like the other side of the world.
Tonight Crystal and I shared a pizza in my new apartment. We laughed, we expressed anger and frustration, we hugged. In other words, it was a fantastic visit.
Tonight I am grateful for good friends like Crystal who are willing to share pizza at my cluttered dining room table.
