I suppose I should issue a warning to my family and friends that if you have touched a part of my life and I can find some image to convey that in this blog--well, I will. This is the latest contribution to my happiness.
This summer I had a wonderful lunch with long time friends where we lingered over stories of our shared experiences covering close to 40 years. We laughed, we shed a few tears and strengthened bonds which were created over many years. There was an empty seat at the table--we were five when most of our experiences were shared as six. These friends loved my late husband, and we talked freely about how many of our memories included him.
Today, I received in the mail this sampler with a card from one of the couples with the following message that went straight to my heart . This sentence especially--"Con, saw this and thought of you--what a journey to happiness you've had."
I really didn't know what shape this blog would take. I knew I wanted it to be a companion to my book Above & Beyond Wellfleet. Little did I know, how much it would emphasize just how "Beyond" I've come.
The point of sharing this gift with you, is not to boast about how lucky I am to have such dear friends. It is rather to say--"hold on". When you can't see the possibility of happiness--it will come. Connie
