I just got off the phone with a friend from our Germany days.
I've thought of her often over the years.
We were worlds apart when we were in Germany together;
she a confident homeschooling 'older' mother,
me a young know-it-all snob.
I could have learned so much from her,
but I was too stupid to see that at the time.
I've wished, many times, that I would have allowed her
to befriend me and teach me.
But I didn't.
she was weird.
Yet, here I sit
twenty years later
weirder than she could even hope to be!
I finally got up the gumption to call.
I wasn't sure if she'd even remember me....
I am unforgettable :-)
their grown children
are living about three hours away!
and have been for the past several years....
It really is a small world
