There I was, on the riding mower, circling and circling and circling the lawn, and thinking that finally, FINALLY, after all these days of constant pouring rain, that I was going to get the grass cut.
As I approached the house on one of my circuits, I saw Hub standing in the driveway, flagging me down.
"Brenda called. She's in town."
YESSSSS! My beautiful dear friend who had the audacity to move away a few years ago was in town!!!!!!
I finished my mowing circuit, parked the mower in the garage, ran up the stairs, jumped into the shower, put on CLEAN JEANS (that's how much I love Brenda!!) and drove to meet her.
We hadn't seen each other in about two years or so but it was like we'd never been separated at all. It will always be like that for Brenda and me.
We drove around the town (that took about three minutes) and finally settled down in a fast-food restaurant, in a back booth, with diet cokes in front of each of us, and proceeded to fill each other in.
All I can tell you is this: if any of you is fortunate enough to have a wonderful friend like Brenda, you should count your blessings. Life just doesn't get much better than that.
P.S. Please go to her website and buy her books.
