A moment in time

December 23, 2010 | Words

You know how someone says something that’s simply perfect? Linda Lowen just did that in her post about Elizabeth Edwards, Saying Goodbye to Elizabeth Edwards and Remembering Dana.

Let me just say that some things were simply meant to just … be.

A summer day spent on a beach with two close female friends may be special in and of itself. But we’re unable to retain a sense of the magic of that individual day when we see it as just one of many in a long line of bright, beautiful, shining days ahead of us, the days hanging like pearls on a strand, the years dangling like multiple strands on a necklace. It’s only when we take that one pearl out of context and suspend it on its own chain that we see how rare, how lustrous, and how small a thing it is.

Beautiful. Thank you, Linda.

    Becky, thank you for your gift of friendship. One pearl on my strand of extraordinary moments is our meal at Fox & Obel in Chicago — was it lunch? dinner? I can’t remember. But I do remember it cemented a friendship that I hope will grow over the years, even though we practically never see each other.

    This is such a gift to me on this day — a crazy hectic runaround kind of day. It’s my big breath of sweet air before I plunge into the turbulence of last-minute preparations. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I think it was lunch, but we talked a lot … so maybe we stretched it into dinner. Wishing you all the best, Linda! Can’t wait to see you again next time. :)
