Anyone who read my last post knows yesterday wasn’t the best one by a long shot. However, every cloud has a silver lining. Sometimes you have to look for it and sometimes it just appears!
Yesterday it appeared in the form of two ladies in Dairy Queen who sat at the table next to mine. I was minding my own business enjoying every bite of my Kit Kat Blizzard and chicken strips with fries and gravy.
I wasn’t meaning to hear their conversation but it was hard not to. They were talking about TV and movies when one mentioned Harry Connick Jr. and Sandra Bullock were in a movie together but she couldn’t remember the name. It just popped out of my mouth “Hope Floats”. Then I apologized for eves-dropping.
Well, that started it. We got into discussions about all versions of Star Trek on the big and small screens, knitting, crocheting, family, you name it. These ladies were a hoot. It was nice to talk to people from my generation who had similar interests. We all have arthritis, like big band music, Harry Connick Jr., Aerosmith, and hate that our bodies can’t do what they used to.
It was a wonderful conversation and just what I needed to break me out of my depression and pain. I didn’t realize they had actually talked about driving me to wherever I needed to be. I mentioned Hubby was picking me up but I guess they didn’t hear me.
It was a chance meeting, and we probably won’t see each other again (one lives in Vancouver, the other in Langley and they only get together a couple of times a year). But it was definitely what I needed!
