A Special Meet Up on a Summer Night



When you are young you have lots of friends and you make plans like going to college together and dreaming what it will be like one day when you are adults. For most of us, those plans never work out the way we thought they would. God has a different path for our lives. Yet, those special friendships we have been blessed with have a way of spanning time and distance.


I was so lucky last night to meet up with one of my very best friends from Middle School on ... the girl who stood beside me almost 22 years ago when I said "I Do" to the love of my life. My beautiful friend who has fought a hard battle against breast cancer this year.


After not seeing each other for ten years we were able to make plans to meet up last night at Stone Mountain Park to have dinner on the VIP Terrace and watch the laser light show. You know a true friend when you can sit down after not seeing each other in ten years and pick up a conversation as if it had only been a few days since you had seen each other last. {Of course, some of that is thanks to Facebook and being able to keep up with each others lives.}


Loved watching our kids play together ... thankfully, they have girls who love dance and, like my girls, the world is their stage so having a dance competition before the show started was just par for the course.


It was such a fun evening ... and even Ava Mae {who for some reason only remembered that the laser show had a bunch of commercials and wondered why we would invite out of town friends to such a boring show} had a good time. It seemed like the night ended way too soon and we were saying our good-byes once again. This time though, we promised each other it would not be another 10 years!

Sounds like a wonderful gathering! I love meeting up with old friends and watching our kids connect as well.
