One of my dearest friends from college sent me an e-mail yesterday.
She's coming to visit!!
She's actually facing the lines, roughin' it through security, sitting in cramped quarters, living through this new era without complimentary peanuts, flying on an airplane and coming all the way up here just to see lil' ol' me!
Do you comprehend that? She's not passing through on her way to a grander destination. She's not using me for an overnight stay so she can get back on the road. She's not coming to sightsee in the area and using my home as a base.
No, her express purpose of spending money on a plane ticket is to visit!
I'm so happy, so pleased, so loved, and so edified by the very great blessing of a very great friend. Thank you, dearest Lord, for such a sublime gift.
Do you keep up with your college (or high school) friends? Stories, please!
