Happy...

This weekend I learned of a wonderful development in the life of a close friend. We hadn't talked for months, but ours is one of those college friendships that easily picks up right where we left off. In these last couple of months, she has found what seems to be the love of her life.

She was my maid of honor twelve years ago, and has not yet been married herself. Highly successful, brilliant, and pretty, she's good at reaching lofty goals, but this one area has been lacking. I think those days are over.

After talking with her yesterday afternoon, getting the full story of the last two months straight from the source, I found the grin she left on my face wouldn't go away for hours. And it's back this morning.

Nothing's official yet, but I have been advised to look forward to the summer of 2009.

What a gift.

How cool that you have that grin plastered in place over someone else's good news.

Holly, are you the Holly I think you are? How long you been lurking?

Yes, it's me, and I've been lurking for, oh, several months now. I tried to de-lurk and leave my condolences when you lost your girl, but it didn't work for some reason. And I was heartbroken for you!
