When the Time is Right

Today was a special day I have been waiting to happen for some time. A Facebook friend that I had never met until recently took the time to visit me in the hospital. She was passing through town on her way to spend a month with a longtime friend in another part of the state. I have been waiting for her to come back through town on her return trip home to San Diego. Today the time was right.

I had a chance to tell her how grateful I was for her kindness. We also had a chance to share the lunch I enjoyed preparing and take the time to get to know each other. I was very surprised as we talked at how much we have in common. Although there is some difference in our ages we share similar experiences and have learned many of the same lessons. I believe #1 is that we need to take care of ourselves first. It is really surprising just how long it takes to learn that little/big lesson.

Looks like everything happens when the time is right. If it didn't none of us would ever move on. Thanks for the visit Lois!


  1. Barbara, my time with you on Wednesday was most precious.... I loved getting to know you just a little bit more and lunch was delicious! I know that we are sisters from different mothers and that our DNA seems to be similar in so many ways - the experiences we've had in our earth suits sure seemed to have followed similar paths! I am so happy to have met you and been able to spend a little bit of time with you. Bless you from the bottoms of your feet to the top of your head :) You are awesome!

  2. Lois the pleasure was all mine. I have a feeling this is not the only time we will meet in this lifetime. I think we have a lot more to talk about!
