A little over a year ago my mom did something that I thought was impossible. What was most impressive about it was that she did it from beyond the grave.
I wrote this post marveling at how things seem to happen in random ways. After searching for a friend for an extended period of time, I had all but given up. It seems like just last month his email showed up in my inbox at work and it made me believe that my mother had pulled some major strings in Heaven to make that happen.
Remarkably, the calendar has moved forward by a year. We have been in constant contact since then and have developed a wonderful friendship. I hadn’t realized by rekindling our relationship twenty-five years later we would become such close friends.
In August he had asked me to write a blog post – I can’t remember if he said for him or about him – and this post is what came out.
It’s been a pleasure getting to know him all over again and I thank my mom for all the fairy dust she must have bartered for to be able to make our reunion happen.
