Vicki is a friend from high school, whom I have barely seen since we graduated...in 1998!! (There was one evening when I got back from Botswana in 2000, but that was ever so brief because I got kicked out of the bar for not being 21...I know...there's more of a story, but I won't get into that here. :) But recently we have come back in touch with each other and, although we are in very different life stages and parts of the country, it is so nice to reconnect with people.
One of the things I am most grateful for in reconnecting with Vicki is for her wisdom and caring. I've been struggling a bit lately with the fact that all my friends (well most of them) are getting married, or are in relationships headed for marriage and I am still trying to get a guy to give me a second glance. Vicki said something wonderfully reassuring that I definintely don't remember enough: that guy is out there, he is just still being prepared for me, as I am for him. It will happen in good time and there is no need (or use) in stressing about it now.
I don't have a picture for this post, because all of the ones I have are at least 9 years old and at my parents house, but still, Vicki, you're the best!
