The doorbell rang last Friday night while we were at my parent’s house for Thanksgiving, and I was so surprised when one of my high school friends was standing on the porch as we opened the door! 

We had not seen each other since 1983!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Charlotte and I were in 4-H together and all sorts of other things!  Now she lives in Arizona with her family.  We reconnected a couple of years ago when Charlotte heard about Nick’s fight with cancer.  She found me through the Internet and became an immediate encourager.  See, Charlotte knew exactly what road I was on, because she lost her son to bone cancer several years ago at the age of 20.

Her constant words of love have gotten me through a lot of tough days.

It felt so good to hug her and share a few minutes catching up IN PERSON!

I love you, Charlotte!  So much!

Have a very merry Christmas!
