Back in another lifetime entirely when I was a single mama of two (Hank and May) I went to nursing school. I thought I would end up a midwife.
Well, I didn't, but those years of being in school turned out to be some of the best of my life. And one of the main reasons was because of the girls I went to school with. The one that caught my heart and that I fell in love with the hardest was the youngest girl in the class, even though I was one of the oldest ones in the class.
And now she's started a blog and I hope she keeps it up.
Tonight she wrote about those years, that other lifetime, a little bit, and how she has met Jessie and Vergil and how they are coming to her house tonight in the mountains of Colorado to have dinner with her family.
It made me cry, reading what Terry wrote.
As I wrote in the comments, I have always said that there is a place in my heart where there is room for no one but her.
Always will be.
And tonight Jessie is at her house, eating supper.
Life is funny, the circles that we make.
And enough to make you cry.
You can read Terry's words here if you want.
I think she's a terrific writer and I can hear her voice, her Brooklyn voice, as I read her blog. It makes my heart so happy.
Yeah. Terry. Terry Joy was her pre-married name.
It suited her then, it suits her now.
And in my heart, she will always be a joy.
