We haven't seen each other in at least 40 years. I guess life happened and we lost touch. I happened to find her last year on Facebook. I told her I was moving to Texas in December and to keep in touch. She told me she lived in Texas in the 80's and loved it. I never thought anything of it. I just was glad to hear from her and rekindle the friendship of long ago.
We went to grade school together and she moved to Pa. when we were in the 4th grade. We kept in touch a little while, visiting back and forth. After that I remember letters.......
When I got married the first time she sent me crystal on the rock glasses with flowers from HI, where she was living at the time. I moved around alot and we lost track!
She Facebooked me a few weeks ago and said she was coming to Texas and could we get together. YES!!!!
I started setting my table yesterday, Monday .....well I didn't like it! I changed it a few times (alot) and even thought to use my Blue Garland china. I just couldn't find the right thing! I wanted it to be special....I figured, I may not see her again for another 40 years! I just wanted everything to be perfect....I wanted to bless my friend!
I did take a before picture.
I bought the green plates there too! The napkins came from
The Salvation Army.
