I chatted to an old school friend Terri yesterday we had such a laugh. She and I were boarders together at school. She had sent me a card which was a painting she had done herself and had professionally printed so I phoned her. And we laughed and laughed. We went to local dances together in our teens and I reminded her of her orange coloured PVC jacket she always wore, that crackled as she walked and had that plastic scent, so I used to say to her that you could smell her before you saw her! She is still a drama queen, just how she was when we were 15!
It was like we were young again talking to her. All those times remembered when 4 of us in our dorm eating biscuits and whispering after lights out, we thought it was so daring and naughty! NO, not 4 only 3 of us, Michelle Donovan wouldn't as it was against the rules! How did I just remember that? Such lovely times remembering, we used to swoon reading Keats poetry and we said we would only marry someone who was a romantic like him. What went wrong? And also I had flowers from my friend Jenny in Australia! It was such a wonderful surprise, I had beautiful flowers from my two step daughters too.
I have had so many messages and phone calls, I have even had mails from my friends on holiday in Spain and a young couple I know from Church who are missionaries in Laos!!
It made me feel better and the pain is less except when I try to get out of bed, my body gets out but my arm stays behind! Ouch!!
But another day nearer to getting better.
Thank you for all your good wishes, I am blessed with wonderful friends.
