One of my oldest and closest friends drove through town yesterday and we snapped up a photo o our kids together. We rarely see eachother, usually when her family droves through Raleigh on their way north from Florida. And we never take a photo. But this year, I didn't forget. This was the year we almost didn't see eachother again.
I'm grateful for science and modern medicine and the folks that saved my friend so our children could play together, just like she and I did 30 years ago.
