I learn a lot about the past in my present moments. This last week, my dear friend's husband had a heart attack. It was extremely serious--to the extent that it looks like a true miracle that he's doing well now.
My friend (from Jr. High and High School) gave me a call. Another friend who lived nearby had been notified. Each one of us wanted to "run to" my friend to help her. I've noticed that loving friendships can endure the separation of time and space and return as if no separation had ever occurred. Love is an amazing thing. I'm so grateful for my friends.

I intended to do a Memory Lane Monday post using Amy Coffin's challenges, but it's now past midnight. My favorite food was homemade hamburgers, with chips or fries which we would dip in Thousand Island or Blue Cheese dressing, and green beans. I liked the familiarity of this Friday night meal more than the food itself, I think.
