I also suddenly found myself thinking about how long she and I have known each other, and she's very nearly my oldest friend - we go back to December 1994, when I went to live in her house as a lodger.
so much water has gone under so many bridges since then. amazed that a friendship could weather all those changes.
thankful that God helped me to do the overheads in church despite the headache, and to feel real joy when singing praise despite the headache. and the sermon was one of the most beautiful and moving sermons I'd ever heard. (Genesis 45, focusing on v.24. In a nutshell: we've received SO MUCH grace, why grumble and quarrel? Not so much "mustn't grumble" as: why on earth would we want to? A really good reminder about perspective.)
and yay, a friend I haven't seen in AGES is coming to visit Tuesday afternoon. she lives far away but some relatives of hers have moved to our town and she's combining seeing them with a visit to friend in another town nearby, and she emailed to ask if we could meet for a coffee while she's here. (this is a friendship I'm especially grateful for as it's a friendship that survived a serious quarrel and later reconciliation. we had a long phase of not speaking to each other, and then forgiveness happened. for real. such a rare and precious thing.)
and how's your day been/being?
the penguin said.
oh no, I told him,
you spelled that wrong.
nonsense, squawked the bird,
look at that parcel that arrived in the post.
it's your herb order, silly.
oh yay, said I,
or would have if
I had a clue what to do with thyme
except making up silly rhymes
instead of going to sleep already.
