One of those things that make you go, hmmmmm

Wednesday was Lennie’s birthday.  She’s 3 months older than me (had to throw that in)!  We grew up together in the neighborhood.  Our family moved in next door to her family…it was meant to be.  She had older siblings so we thought of her as an only child too.

As we got busy with our own families as adults we seldom kept in touch and I regret that…but we always had a connection.  We were so shocked two years in a row that we met, quite by accident, in almost the same place at the Iowa State Fair.  So…back to her birthday.

I wished her a happy Facebook birthday and looked through some of her albums feeling sad and wondering if we would ever get together again.


i got a text from her yesterday saying she and her husband and brother in law were going to be in Pleasant Hill tomorrow looking at an old truck…maybe we could see each other.  OMG OMG OMG

Some would call this just a coincidence.  I call it a connection….whatever we label it, I’m giddy.  She just texted that they are in Missouri headed south.  You know there will be pictures.

until next time…..

  1. Those photos are so adorable!

    I’m a sceptic about many things but there is something uncanny about synchronicity like that that is fascinating and undeniable.
