I saw Jackie tonight!

October 7th – We’re here outside Boston visiting the Minute Man National Historical Park (a.k.a. Lexington and Concord) and also Walden Pond.  Jackie calls me a week ago and lets me know she’s going to be in Boston.  When?  October 5-7.  Turns out we are overlapping our time here!  It is one of those ‘couldn’t have planned it better if we tried’ events.  Jackie finished her meetings and we were able to steal two precious hours together before she left for Logan where she’s jetting off to Switzerland for a month of work over there.

Roommates in college and a true BFF ever since, we have shared in all of the ups and downs of life. Love ya, Jack! I already miss you. Safe travels. See you in Texas in February.

When the roses lose their fragrance,
and the world seems at an end,
When the day has lost its gladness,
what a blessing is a Friend.

One who takes you as she finds you,
caring not who is to blame,
One who knows all your shortcomings,
but who loves you just the same.

Heaven sends a gift each morn,
of a bright new day to spend,
What a joy it is to share it with,
God’s greatest gift…A Friend
