Waiting for Reunion

I began this week with a treat. But, let me back up…
Several months ago my dear and fun friend, one with whom I share many, many wonderful memories
~memories of our boys playing together
~ memories of elementary school PTA stuff
~ memories of starting and developing a women’s ministry in a small, now large church in Wausau,WI.
~memories of growing together spiritually

-she called me to let me know she had registered for She Speaks! Yippee.

On Friday morning as I made final preparations for all the ladies to arrive in Concord, NC I spotted my friend. We hung out when we could over the weekend and then came Sunday when the grand experience came to a sweet end.

Sally went home with me to spend the night.

As we sat with our husbands and reminisced we realized how long it had been since the four of us had enjoyed each other’s company. We had waited ten long years for this weekend. I mean ten years ago both families moved away from our happy existence in Wausau. Our boys grew up. Our husbands retired. Life moved on.

Then after the long wait, we were rewarded!

Good things come to those who wait faithfully. I can’t wait until we get together again. Right now we have no plans, but God knows and I am willing to wait!

Right now I can’t wait to get into bed. Good night!

You lived in Wausau?? I just drove through there this week as I picked up my daughter from camp near Three Lakes. How funny! I think it's beautiful up there. But, of course, it's beautiful in NC too!
