ON THE BACK BURNER

March 17

I had two really nice, special things happen to me this week. I heard via messenger from an old friend. She and I ran together for many years and even lived in the same high rise when we sold our home and moved to the city. We both would get up in the dark, in the cold, in the rain, in the snow and run before she went to work. I watched her start her own successful business. We lost track of each others lives as happens sometimes, but I was so happy to hear from her again. Then I had another experience that made me feel really good, too. I was leaving a restaurant and a woman called me over to her table. She asked my name. I told her. She said to her friends,"see, this is the woman who wrote that article in the paper". Wow. Someone read my article on Purim. I was flattered beyond words. These are two very special things that happened to me in just a few days. I am going to save the feeling I get when I think about these exchanges for that day when everything is out of kilter in my life. Right now, everything is good.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
